Dear Jeff,

What is meant by Arrow's Theorem has changed over the years as the 
insights that have been obtained into his orginal result (which required 
some tinkering to make it fully right) has been broadened.

Here are some good places to look at what is known about the questions 
you raise:

Taylor, A., Mathematics and Politics, Springer-Verlag, New York, 1995.

Straffin, P., Topics in the Theory of Voting, Birkhauser, Boston, 1980.

Saari, D., Decisions and Elections, Cambridge U. Press, New York, 2001.

Saari, D., Geometry of Voting, Springer-Verlag, New York, 1994.

Best wishes,
