Deeply flawed US election system to fail again in 2017 http://bitbet.us/bet/1317/deeply-flawed-us-election-system-to-fail-again/ Sat, 13 Aug 2016 14:49:35 +0000
Elaboration: in the deeply flawed US election system, it is possible for a president to be elected when more than half of the voters vote against him or her. This happened for example in the 2000 US presidential election.

This contract resolves to YES if this happens again in the 2017 US presidential election.

The resolution source shall be http://www.fec.gov/pubrec/electionresults.shtml

More details on the broken US election system can be found at fairvote.org .

BitBet reserves the right to wait until any ambiguity or uncertainty is lifted before this contract is settled.
