Maemo Community Council election: results are in!
 
Hi all,
The results of the Maemo Community Council are available - and we have a new Council. The Council for the coming 6 months will be:
  • Randall Arnold (Texrat)
  • Matthew Lewis(penguinbait)
  • Alan Bruce (qole)
  • Valerio Valerio (VDVsx)
  • Graham Cobb (gcobb)

You can see the details of the count at http://maemo.org/vote/results.php?election_id=7

Congratulations to all the successful candidates, and commiserations to all those who were not elected.

For anyone who wishes to double-check the election results, you can obtain a list of the votes at http://maemo.org/vote/votes.php?election_id=7 and you can download the ballots on OpenSTV format, and re-run the election count yourself, at http://maemo.org/vote/blt.php?election_id=7

Cheers,
Dave.

lcuk 192
penguinbait 186
VDVsx 185

gcobb 183

Its interesting to me, that the # of "first choice" votes match the winners. It bums me out that lcuk received the 3rd highest # of total votes yet did not get a seat on council. :(

The joys of STV - if you're always the 2nd or 3rd preference, and you don't get enough 1st choices, you're not going to get elected.

If you do the same test with just the 1st to 5th preference votes, how does it work out? (I haven't tried, just wondering).

Dave.

So totals of 1 through 5 are:

qole: 66 + 53 + 32 + 30 + 16 = 197
Texrat: 50 + 51 + 28 + 21 + 14 = 164
penguinbait: 37 + 34 + 32 + 21 + 17 = 141
lcuk: 30 + 21 + 30 + 28 + 31 + 140
VDVsx: 38 + 22 + 26 + 25 + 24 = 135

gcobb: 37 + 30 + 28 + 18 + 13 = 126
sjgadsby: 15 + 31 + 30 + 28 + 19 = 123
zerojay: 11 + 14 + 33 + 25 + 21 = 104
AndrewFBlack: 14 + 16 + 11 + 15 + 15 = 71

Looking at the preferences distribution, it's clear that lcuk was 3rd, 4th or 5th preference for a lot of people, but penguinbait, VDVsx and gcobb are all ahead of him in 1st and 2nd preferences - and those weigh more on the result than 4th or 5th preference.

Cheers,
Dave.

See, this is why we should have used the US electoral system that was in place from 2000-2008, where we held elections, but just made up the results.

Don't misunderestimate me, I'm not saying anything for or against those who won here... it's simply much funner that way.

Congratulations to everybody!

Dear lazyweb, how was the participation compared to previous votings? The merge with Talk can be seen now clearly in the results, but what about the universe of voters and the percentage of participation?

It was posted in another thread, that 303 ballots were cast, 298 of them were non-empty. Compared to I believe 162 voters last election.

I do not know how many eligible voters there was? (in either election)
