Abstract

We investigate the relation between monotonicity and the no-show paradox in voting rules. Although the literature has established their logical independence, we show, by presenting logical dependency results, that the two conditions are closer than a general logical independency result would suggest. Our analysis is made both under variable and fixed-size electorates.

Keywords: Monotonicity, No-Show Paradox, Participation, Reinforcement, Threshold Scoring Rules

JEL Classification: D71
