The Republicans would like the way we do it at the Dorchester Chili Cookoff. Everyone gets one vote with their admission, and they’re supposed to vote for their favorite chili. But once you’re in there, you can buy additional votes, and use those to vote for your favorite chili. The chili for which the most votes were purchased wins. Of course, at the Dorchester Chili Cookoff, the proceeds go to a charity. I’m not sure the Republicans would like that part.
