Criminal Justice In California civil court cases, each of the 12 jurors has one vote and at least 9 of the jury members must agree on the verdict.

a. Write the weighted voting system. in the form

b. Is this weighted voting system a one-person, one-vote system?

c. Is this weighted voting system a veto power system?

d. Explain an easy way to determine the Banzhaf power index for each voter.

A voter who has a weight that is greater than or equal o the quota is called a dictator. In a weighted voting system, the dictator has all the po4er. A voter who is never a critical voter has no power and *is* referred to as a dummy. This term is not meant to be a comment on the voterâ€™s intellectual powers: it just indicates that the voter has no ability to influence an *election.*
