The OpenStreetMap Foundation election to the Board is coming up soon, or so I hear. And will use Single Transferrable Vote (STV) for the first time. I'm not familliar with STV, not having lived in an STV jusrisdiction, and wanted to see what the proceess looked like. Dermot found some tools for use by the Board, and now I've made a tool to create example election results.
