Technical notes for the At-Large and Computer Science Representative Elections:

  • The raw ballot data and the output log of the Single Transferrable Vote (STV) vote count can be found above. The vote count was run using STV-rs, an open-source STV system which uses Meek’s Method, a detail which ensured all seats were filled with candidates.
  • One candidate was disqualified because they did not submit an expense report. They were marked as “withdrawn” in the input for the program (and this can be seen in the output log), effectively removing them from the count. For this reason, the Computer Science Representative election had 75 ballots, but the output log indicates there were just 62. The program removed 13 ballots which included only the withdrawn candidate in their rankings.
  • Last, ties were broken with the use of a tiebreaker ballot provided ahead of the voting period, as defined and required by MathSoc Policy 1.5.5.

For our First-Year representative seat, we had 203 voters (casting 196 ballots and 7 declines) of 1500 eligible members. This comes out to an exceptional turnout of 13.5%. Thank you all for running such engaging campaigns!

Technical notes for the First-Year election:

  • The raw ballot data can be found at this link, and the output log of the Single Transferable Vote (STV) vote count can be found at this link. The vote count was run using STV-rs, an open-source STV system which uses Meek’s Method, a detail which ensured all seats were filled with candidates.
  • Several candidates were disqualified because they did not submit an expense report. They were marked as “withdrawn” in the input for the program (and this can be seen in the output log), effectively removing them from the count. For this reason, while there were 196 ballots, the output log indicates there were just 192, since the program removed 4 ballots which included only those candidates in their rankings.
