By providing them with a voting system which allows them to express their 
preferences adequately so that they don't _have_ to lie, if they want their 
true preferences to be considered fairly. Most other voting systems simply 
can't do that.

This whole discussion tells me that the original proposal (with Manoj's 
s/quorum/.../ change, for consistency) should be up to that task.

Why, is that a trick question?  ;-)
