The Borda method is a form of preference voting where the rankings by the voters are converted into scores using weights for the ranks, and the society's preference order on the alternatives is determined by the order on the scores obtained by each alternative. In this paper we show that once the individuals' preference orders are given there is at least one preference order that cannot be the societal preference order whatever is the choice of weights for the ranks.
