Vox populi

You may have noticed there's been a wee bit of discussion lately about the system by which the United States selects its President, which for the second time in recent history has handed a victory to the (Republican) candidate who actually lost the popular vote. In this case, Hillary Clinton won by a decisive margin, nearly 3 million votes at last count. That has resulted in some soul searching about the validity of the model. 

Nicky Case (whom I've written about before as, among other talents, the author of interactive games) developed an informative and highly engaging article/tool to help people better understand the strengths and weaknesses of alternative voting strategies: To Build a Better Ballot.
