The theory of voting is not worth bothering with unless it is going to be applied.
Michael Dummett, 1984 
While DSV is quite interesting from a theoretical standpoint, the theory would be of little consequence if it could not be applied to real voting situations. In this chapter we evaluate the behavior of declared-strategy voting systems and assess their suitability for real-world group decision-making. In Section we present an acceptability study designed to assess attitudes about DSV. In Section we present the results of our DSV simulations. In Section we present a case study of the 1992 Presidential election and discuss the impact DSV might have had on that election. In Section we return to the evaluation criteria presented in Chapter , applying them to DSV.
