A nail-biting election
In the first competitive election for President of the Social Choice and Welfare Society, the (official) approval-voting winner differed from the (hypothetical) Borda count winner, who was also the Condorcet winner. But because the election was essentially a toss-up, it is impossible to say who should have won. The election for Council was more true to form of other professional-society elections, with the winners identical, and even their rankings almost duplicative, under both voting systems.
