Abstract

In an election held in a noisy environment, agents may unintentionally perturb the outcome by communicating faulty preferences. We investigate this setting by introducing a theoretical model of noisy preference aggregation and formally defining the (worst-case) robustness of a voting rule. We use our model to analytically bound the robustness of various prominent rules. Our results essentially specify the voting rules which allow for reasonable preference aggregation in the face of noise.
