The property of participation is satisfied by a voting rule if under no circumstances it is to thebenefit of a voter to abstain rather than vote according to his/her preferences. By Moulin's result of 1988 all voting rules that always elect a Condorcet winner when one exists fail on the property of participation \cite{Moulin 1988}. Focusing on preference profiles that are restricted to those having a Condorcet winner we ask whether Moulin's result holds under these preference profiles. It turns out that while some types of monotonicity paradoxes vanish in the Condorcet domains, others persist.
