>> The book notes --

>> Plurality, p. 142
>> Two-Round Runoff Voting, p. 146
>> Instant Runoff Voting, p. 151

>> NO mention of my Hitler-Stalin-Washington IRV example (no big surprise).

>> In *somewhat buried* Appendix C he mentions-

>> Approval Voting,  p. 183
>> Condorcet Voting,  p. 187

>> *Sincere voting* made it into the Glossary of Terms, p. 203.
