The Borda Count Method
This is how it works:
The Borda Count is a single-winner election method in which voters rank options or candidates in order of preference. The Borda Count determines the outcome of a debate or the winner of an election by giving each candidate, for each ballot, a number of points corresponding to the number of candidates ranked lower.
So if we are trying to decide which people like more between Lemonade, Strawberry Lemonade, Cherry Lemonade and Raspberry Lemonade, we could use this method in helping us find that out. I would ask different people on their opinions mark it down. If you would say that Lemonade is your favorite, you would give Lemonade 4 points, if Strawberry Lemonade was your 2nd favorite, you would give Strawberry 3 points. Say that Cherry Lemonade was your 3rd favorite, you would give it 2 points, and say Raspberry Lemonade is your least favorite so you would give it 1 point. So I recorded Tyler's opinions and he has 4 points for Lemonade, 1 point for Strawberry Lemonade, 2 points for Cherry Lemonade, and 3 points for Raspberry Lemonade. I then move onto Christopher. He has 2 points for Lemonade, 1 point for Strawberry Lemonade, 4 points for Cherry Lemonade, and 3 points to Raspberry Lemonade. Lastly, I chose 2 points for Lemonade, 1 point for Strawberry Lemonade, 4 points for Cherry Lemonade, and 3 points for Raspberry Lemonade. After I gathered everybody's data and information, I add them all up separately. So Lemonade had 8 total points, 3 total points for Strawberry Lemonade, 10 total points for Cherry Lemonade, and 9 total points for Raspberry Lemonade . So Cherry Lemonade got 1st, Raspberry Lemonade got 2nd, Lemonade got 3rd, and Strawberry Lemonade got 4th. And that is how you use the Borda Count Method.
