Election 2011

I just subscribed to a vote swap site, votepair.ca; we'll see how it goes, but I support the principle. The swap system can be played strategically, the way this site has set it up, but that's okay... it's really hard to set up a vote system that can't, and I believe that it has been proven that any voting system that can't be played strategically is non-deterministic, that is, has some random elements.

I think this is an exceptionally important election, basically for the reasons Michael Ignatieff puts forward in this 3-minute speech.
