For the purposes of this message, a lottery is a stack of papers of standard copier size (8.5 inch by 11 inch) such that each paper has the name of exactly one candidate typed on it.
This stack of papers is a lottery in the sense that a sheet of paper can be drawn at random from the stack to determine the election winner.
Democratic Lottery Enhancement (DLE).
1.  Each voter is issued two copies of the initial lottery, i.e. the lottery that is considered to be in need of democratic enhancement.
2.  Each voter selects exactly half of the papers for discard, and then returns the other half of the papers.
3.  The returned papers are collated or merged to form a new, democraticaly enhanced lottery.
