This coming Monday, eligible voters will go to the polls to cast their vote for their favourite candidate representing one of the 4 major parties: Conservative, Green, Liberal, NDP. When the votes are counted, the candidate with the most votes will win.
In the 2011 election, Richmond’s NDP candidate, Jasbir Sandhu, won with 14,678 votes, edging out the Conservative candidate, Dona Cadman, who garnered 13181. The Liberal got 6797 votes and the Green got 1289. Clearly, not everyone voted: with 68,137 eligible voters in Surrey North, the turnout was only 53%. To keep the numbers simple for this problem, you will assume that on Monday, there will be 100 eligible voters for Richmond.
What’s the number of possible election results, assuming that everyone (all 100) will vote?
