At Arisia, Sunday at 1pm I'll be taking part in "Arisia Lightning Talks" in which Arisians distill down something they find fascinating and wish to share into the essence that fits in 5 minutes. I'll be talking about elections, two notably messy elections, a better way, and a false better way. This may be review for anyone I've talked to, ever, but I still hope to make it a good punchy five minutes.

This kinda makes me want to prepare a companion/counterpoint to what I think your talk will say.

How does one sign up for these? Or is it too late already?

In theory signup was months ago, and slides were due last Monday, but I could give you the email of the organizer in case there are openings.
The short-short version: Bush-Gore-Nader 2000, Chirac-Le Pen 2002, Condorcet rocks, IRV sucks, (See also finance, redistricting, media, ballot access, suppression, etc)
