Comments[edit]

SecurePoll and my local OpenSTV agree on elected candidates.

For some reason on the stack overflow page, there are two extra candidates who were elected. I don't understand this, as originally there are only 4 seats available. Reading here they list the same 4 candidates as winners as SecurePoll, and a 5th candidate who was added after the election due to another moderator stepping down. I assume the same thing happened for the 6th winner.

Election setup[edit]

  • Candidates: 10
  • Seats: 4
  • Votes: 6449
