Abstrakt


There is a debate within the libertarian intellectual community regarding the legitimacy of voting in democratic elections. Critics say that such behavior is incompatible with this doctrine. The present paper defends voting from a libertarian perspective. It is an attempted refutation of the views on this matter of Casey, McElroy, Ward, Pugsley, Konkin and Barnett.
