What if people were allowed to vote as many times as possible in an election, instead of the standard one person, one vote setup?
What would be the impact on turnout figures? Would more people vote, figuring that they could have the illusion of "more say in how things turnout"? (Of course, if everyone voted twice, the effect is neutral.) Would less people vote, figuring "I've only got time to vote once and everyone else gets to vote 100 times, forget it"?
Would people always vote the same way? Think of the 2000 presidential election; instead of having to choose between Nader and Gore, as it was believed, would people incur the extra cost to toss a few votes to each?
Could companies pay people to vote all day long as opposed to lobbying legislators? They're both lobbying, but if the company spent less in paying people, ceteris paribus, isn't this efficiency enhancing?
