Borda voting rule

Assume we have m candidates in the election, i.e., |C|=m. In each vote the candidate at position 1 gains m-1 points, the candidate at position 2 gains m-2 points, and so on. Finally, the candidate at position m gains zero points. The winners are the candidates with maximum score.

1: banana > cherry > apple 2: cherry > banana > apple 3: apple > banana > cherry 4: cherry > banana > apple
