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

2018-06-25 01:15:01 UTC  

Well, it looks like I will most likely not be elected, most of the Feds will be.

2018-06-25 01:15:43 UTC  

Well, at least you tried hard

2018-06-25 01:15:47 UTC  

^^^

2018-06-25 01:16:16 UTC

2018-06-25 01:42:47 UTC

2018-06-25 15:03:28 UTC

2018-06-25 15:05:13 UTC  

Peebs is working on it rn

2018-06-25 15:06:13 UTC  

Awesome, I know it takes forever to do. I wish there was an easier way for her to do it. I must be very hard on her

2018-06-25 15:07:25 UTC  

and these are the highest turnout elections in atlasian history too

2018-06-25 15:07:51 UTC  

How many votes were there, I couldn't remember.

2018-06-25 15:07:52 UTC

2018-06-25 15:08:45 UTC

2018-06-25 15:09:11 UTC  

That is crazy.
