Election Model Experiment

In my Comparative Government and Politics classes I did a small experiment in order to bring across how different electoral systems may lead to different outcomes, for instance when comparing votes cast in a ‘single member district’ system or a system of proportional representation. We learned quite a few things, among other the importance of campaigning: adding the picture of the puppy doubled the votes for the animal rights party!
