This is a simple tally vote. Voters can vote either Yes or No on an issue, or they can abstain. Votes are tallied, and the result is presented. It is up to the election committee to interpret the result.
This is a simple tally vote. Voters can vote either Yes or No on an issue, or they can abstain, however certain people (committee members, for instance) may cast binding votes whereas others may only cast non-binding votes. Votes are tallied, and the result is presented. It is up to the election committee to interpret the result.
FPP is a voting system with multiple candidates. The candidate with the most votes will win, regardless of whether they received more than half the votes or not.
The D'Hondt method, also known as the Jefferson method, is a highest average method for calculating proportional representation of parties at an election. In essence, this is done by calculating a quotient per party for each number of seats available and finding the highest values. The quotient is determined as V/(s+1) where V is the number of votes received and s is the number of seats won. Thus, for each party, the quotient is calculated for the number of seats available:
|Party:||Votes:||1 seat:||2 seats:||3 seats:||4 seats:||seats won:|
|Gnomes||25,000||25,000/(0+1) = 25,000||25,000/(1+1) = 12,500||25,000/(2+1) = 8,333||25,000/(3+1) = 6,250||2|
|Elves||15,000||15,000/(0+1) = 15,000||15,000/(1+1) = 7,500||15,000/(2+1) = 5,000||15,000/(3+1) = 3,750||1|
|Dwarves||10,000||10,000/(0+1) = 10,000||10,000/(1+1) = 5,000||10,000/(2+1) = 3,333||10,000/(3+1) = 2,500||1|
