Voter classification

Public election

As seen in elections for officials such as parliamentarians, a method of electing by voting by general voters. Election rights requirements need not match those of voters. For this reason, even in a one-party dictatorship, there are some places that maintain the public election without breaking the system by adding "recommendation of dictator" to the requirements for exercising the right to vote. Alternatively, there are cases where a person who does not have the right of a voter is elected, such as a governor election in which a person who lives in another prefecture can also run.Private electionAlso say.

Unlike public elections, the requirements for voting rights and voting rights are the same. Public elections in most democratic systems can be said to be large-scale mutual elections because general voters also have the right to vote (However, there are many cases where the requirements for voting rights and election rights are different, and strictly speaking they are mutual elections. Absent).

The expected value of the power ratio of the elected people is exactly equal to the population ratio of the exercising voters, no matter how many people are in the quorum, and if all the voters exercise the voting rights, it will be a proportional representation system. In most cases, individual elections are biased because the probabilities are involved.The Ancient Greek,Muromachi ShogunateThe 6th general (Yoshinori Ashikaga) There is an example in selection. No voter will be held because there are no voters, but will be posted for comparison with elections where there are voters. In addition, multiple candidates may be lined up in the same vote, and either of them may be eligible for the election.

Elections and popularity polls

If you announce the popularity of candidates in advance, it will affect the election results and will not be a fair vote. Therefore, in JapanPublic office election lawArticle 138-3 stipulates "prohibition of publicity vote announcement", and it is prohibited to disclose the results of the popularity vote of candidates in advance. However, in recent years, it has become almost as if an unintentional popularity vote was published on the Internet by the internet media, and it is easy to predict which candidate is popular, and there is a risk that it will affect the election result.
