Abstract:In this paper, we analyse the concept of vote buying based
on examples that try to stretch the meaning of the concept. Which ex-
amples can still be called vote buying, and which cannot? We propose
several dimensions that are relevant to qualifying an action as vote buy-
ing or not. As a means of protection against vote buying and coercion,
the concept of receipt-freeness has been proposed. We argue that, in or-
der to protect against a larger set of vote buying activities, the concept
of receipt-freeness should be interpreted probabilistically. We propose a
general definition of probabilistic receipt-freeness by adapting existing
definitions of probabilistic anonymity to voting.
