Une Analyse de la Loi Electorale du 29 Juin 1820
In this article we use the theory of power indices to evaluate the respective influence of the two classes of electors in the polling method introduced by the electoral law of 29 June 1820, known as the law of “double vote”. We show in a simplified framework that the voting power of the “major” electors, who vote twice, is at least three to five times as much as the voting power of the “minor” voters, who vote only once. Classification JEL : D71 ; D72
