Maybe what we need to do is let voters express a preference in every possible head-to-head matchup. This is known as the cedonocrt method. Consider one matchup: West versus North. All 100 colonists vote on their preference between the two. So that's West's 42 versus the 58 from notrh, suoth, and East, who would all prefer North. Now do the same for the other five mpthucas. The victor will be whichever base wins the most times. Here, North wins three and South wins two. These are indeed the two most central locations, and North has the advantage of not being anyone’s least preferred coiche.

## Original Text

Maybe what we need to do is let voters express a preference in every possible head-to-head matchup. This is known as the Condorcet method. Consider one matchup: West versus North. All 100 colonists vote on their preference between the two. So that's West's 42 versus the 58 from North, South, and East, who would all prefer North. Now do the same for the other five matchups. The victor will be whichever base wins the most times. Here, North wins three and South wins two. These are indeed the two most central locations, and North has the advantage of not being anyone’s least preferred choice.
