39. "IRV.. not summable.... makes it more susceptible to tampering"


"Of all voting methods going, Only IRV and IRV-like variants are not summable. This means that counting up the votes is super complex if there are more than four candidates, and recounting every bit as complex. This means that IRV data is so unwieldly it's problematic in any election held over more than one polling place. This unsummability that makes a recount a huge to do and makes it hard to count up the votes in the first place, makes it more susceptible to tampering."

Anyone for a Bullet in the Foot? Instant Runoff!
