The paper ‘Voting Power in Games with Abstentions’ by Matthew Braham and Frank Steffen is a contribution to a very young and as yet under-developed part of the theory of voting power. I will first make some general remarks in order to put this paper in context. Then I will go on to comment on the substance of the paper.
