Abstract

Nous exploitons dans cet article la théeorie des indices de pouvoir pour évaluer les influences respectives des deux classes d’électeurs dans le mode de scrutin instauré par la loi électorale du 29 juin 1820, dite loi du "double vote". Nous montrons, à l’aide d’un modèle simplifié, que le pouvoir de vote des "grands" électeurs, qui votent deux fois, est au moins trois à quatre fois supérieur à celui des "petits" électeurs, qui ne votent qu’une fois. Le modèle proposé constitue à certains égards une extension de celui qu’Edelman (2004) a récemment utilisé pour étudier les situations dans lesquelles certains électeurs appartiennent à plus d’un collège électoral.
