That is good. It looks like you are well ahead in your race

2018-06-23 20:11:17 UTC  

Yeah

2018-06-23 20:11:37 UTC  

I guess I won't need to vote for myself

2018-06-23 20:11:54 UTC  

Since I'm probably beyond quota

2018-06-23 20:12:14 UTC  

Haha, yea. The same can't be said for me.

2018-06-23 20:12:28 UTC  

Yeah, I'll probably help you out

2018-06-23 20:12:48 UTC  

Since I'll vote strategically

2018-06-23 20:13:29 UTC  

Yea, I have never understood all the strategically voting. It confuses me haha

2018-06-23 20:14:04 UTC  

Well the way it works is that the total number of votes at the end of the election

2018-06-23 20:14:25 UTC  

Are divided by the number of candidates plus one I think

2018-06-23 20:14:33 UTC  

To make the quota

2018-06-23 20:14:52 UTC  

And any candidates who exceed it

2018-06-23 20:15:00 UTC  

Are automatically elected

2018-06-23 20:15:11 UTC  

hey vern! @Vern

2018-06-23 20:15:14 UTC  

And surplus votes are redistributed

2018-06-23 20:15:23 UTC  

Hey Saint!

2018-06-23 20:15:28 UTC  

To those voters 2nd prefs

2018-06-23 20:15:31 UTC  

hi vern

2018-06-23 20:15:39 UTC  

hey dfw

2018-06-23 20:15:45 UTC  

I might vote for you if you need it tomorrow

2018-06-23 20:15:50 UTC  

^

2018-06-23 20:15:51 UTC  

holding my vote off

2018-06-23 20:16:44 UTC  

Thank you dfw. I was trying to hold off, but I was like whatever and voted haha

2018-06-23 20:16:46 UTC  

And then the vote goes to the next round after the surplus redistribution

2018-06-23 20:17:02 UTC  

And the candidate in last place is eliminated

2018-06-23 20:17:02 UTC  

is there stv at fed level too?

2018-06-23 20:17:16 UTC  

Yeah

2018-06-23 20:17:19 UTC  

ah ok

2018-06-23 20:17:21 UTC  

And IRV

2018-06-23 20:18:08 UTC  

And so the votes of the eliminated candidate goes to those voters 2nd prefs

2018-06-23 20:18:29 UTC  

And then the cycle repeats itself with a new quota

2018-06-23 20:18:38 UTC  

And 3rd prefs

2018-06-23 20:19:13 UTC  

Until 9 candidates are elected

2018-06-23 20:19:26 UTC  

I see, So I just need to not be eliminated in the 1st or 2nd round

2018-06-23 20:19:43 UTC  

Yeah kind of

2018-06-23 20:20:28 UTC  

I wish it was easier to see how it would play out, but it takes forever to do it haha

2018-06-24 19:46:46 UTC  

What happens to someone vote if they ranked two people 1?

2018-06-24 19:48:43 UTC  

I think it is invalid for that part of the ballot.

2018-06-24 19:49:30 UTC  

bluedogdemocrat ranked two people number one on the house

2018-06-24 19:54:41 UTC  

I think the top #1 goes to the candidate

2018-06-24 21:35:20 UTC  

unless i get 4 or 5 more 1st perf then I have no chance
