This is the second in a series of articles looking at STV data from the OpenStreetMap Foundation Annual General Meeting ballot measures. In this article I look at vote rank and the number of votes per ballot and how that relates to different candidates.

Candidate ranks on ballots

Let's take a look at the rank of candidates listed on the ballots.

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.

Remembrance Day

Lest We Forget - In Flanders Fields - Memorial at John McCrae House, Guelph Ontario

Remembrance Day brings memories for me of a moment of silence in school and of recitations of In Flanders Fields. After having heard the poem recited hundreds of times I still find it moving. I was surprised to learn that the author of In Flanders Fields was a local. Dr. Lt. Col. John McCrae was born in Guelph, Ontario.

The OpenStreetMap Foundation election to board is coming up shortly. Details will be posted soonish. In the interim, some of you might be wondering what all this STV-stuff is, if you haven't seen it in your local elections.

Kate, wonderchook, offered this link as a handy demonstration of the very basics.
