The term vote refers to both a decision-making process by means of counting expressions for or against a proposal and to the actual expression of such a preference.[1]

The complexity and dimension of the voting system is usually related to the importance of its outcome. Trivial examples would include votes performed in small groups by raising one's hand, while decisions of international importance (such as the United States presidential elections) usually involve complex rules and months of campaigning.
