Comments[edit]

SecurePoll and OpenSTV agree on elected candidates.

SO lists two extra winners for that election, even though the .blt file only has 2 seats. I could not find any explanation of this.

I re-ran SecurePoll with 4 seats, and the elected candidates were the same as listed by stack overflow.

Election: https://math.stackexchange.com/election/3

Election setup[edit]

  • Candidates: 8
  • Seats: 4
