Strong and Coalition - Proof Political Equilibria Under Plurality and Runoff Rule
28 Pages Posted: 10 Sep 2005

We analyze the effects of voter coordination on the equilibrium of voting games. Specifically, we analyze the concepts of strong equilibrium and coalition - proof equilibrium for plurality rule and runoff rule elections.
We characterize these equilibria in the three candidate case, and provide results for important special cases in the general multicandidate case.
