This post includes the raw output from the online voting service used for the OSMF 2014 AGM voting matters. Also included is an html-ified transcription with pretty bar graphs from the original pdf. Find the orignals below.

As noted elsewhere, a typo propagated into the election and so the records show a candidate Paul Normal who we know as candidate Paul Norman. I have left those typos in place.

[Transcription begins. Apologies in advance for errors.]

Let's look at how Single Transferrable Vote works in practice. What do the numbers from the recent OSMF AGM votes say?

Voter engagement

How many eligible voters participated in the vote?

About as many Members and Associate Members participated, or about one hundred of each group. Only Members were permitted to vote on the Special Resolutions (SR1 - SR3). The Special Resolutions required 75% agreement to carry, and they did so.

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.
