From what I am understanding, from class and this article, voting can be looked at under the same idea as Game Theory. However, I do not think that trusting the government should be a game of chance.
As in the current events in the United Kingdom, one cannot simply vote what their preference would be. One has to weigh the outcome of their vote against what others appear to be voting. If I want candidate C to win, I may actually have to vote for candidate A so that candidate B doesn’t get the most votes.
This is also the case in the United Kingdom with the Brexit Referendum. However, their vote comes with even more questions than just who wins. Their vote also asks, “what next”, if they choose to leave.
I am curious if there ever was a time in voting history, if one could actually vote their preference without worrying about the “what if’s”.
