What happens when one group of individuals must collectively choose, by means of voting, one alternative out of a larger set of alternatives, concerning which they may have conflicting opinions? This is the voting problem. Committee voting is voting of the parliamentary type, in which collective choice proceeds through a sequence of binary, yes/no, decisions. This text encompasses a survey of the formal literature on committee voting that builds on the work of Duncan Black and Robin Farquharson, literature which has developed within the framework of economic theory, game theory, social choice theory and spatial voting theory. The chapters focus on vote counting rules, voting agendas, voter preferences, sincere and sophisticated voting strategies, solution sets, voting outcomes, agendas control, and agenda formation.
