last year, Marcello Herreshoff and I worked on a voting method which we
called Hay Voting (after our friend Nick Hay). There's a description of
the method online here:


We wanted a voting method such that a voter's optimal strategy is to
report his or her true utility function. Hay Voting satisfies this
criterion. It's stochastic, so there are no guarantees about which
candidate it elects.
