This is a question about evaluations in hiring or sports judging. Normally score is the best choice for voting because people have an incentive to distinguish. In this case there is a pathology where and evaluator will give moderate scores to all candidates to avoid decision responsibility. Because of this, it seems that Borda would be a better choice because it forces the evaluators to give different values to all candidates. This avoids the problem of evaluators trying to avoid responsibility.
- Borda is Monotonic and pretty good overall but is there a problem I am missing?
- Is there another better system which would do this?
Note in specific implementation:
First rank gets score of 10, second gets score of 9 and so on. All unranked candidates will get 0 so that evaluators can give multiple people a 0.
