# Voter Intimidation and Tampering Consider the voting system { 3 : 1 , 1 , 1 , 1 , 1 } with voters A, B, C, D, and E. The Banzhaf power index of each voter is 0.2. a. Intimidation is used to force B to vote exactly as A. Thus the original { 3 : 1 , 1 , 1 , 1 , 1 } voting system becomes { 3 : 2 , 0 , 1 , 1 , 1 } The weight of A’s vote is now 2 instead of 1. Does this mean that BPI (A) has doubled from 0.2 to 0.4? Explain. b. Voter C tampers with the voting software so that the original { 3 : 1 , 1 , 1 , 1 , 1 } voting system becomes { 3 : 1 , 1 , 2 , 1 , 1 } The weight of C’s vote is now 2 instead of 1. Does this mean that BPI (C) has doubled from 0.2 to 0.4? Explain.
