When I was on the EVE Online Council of Stellar Management, I became quite the election-systems nerd, because I was pushing hard for a reform of the election system. So just for fun, I decided to see if I could implement a Multiple-Choice Ballot in Google Apps.
What I ended up was a sheet with a bunch of embedded scripts that lets you:
- Create a Multiple-Choice Ballot with optional additional questions (radios, dropdowns and fields) and voter validation.
- Store the results in a sheet.
- Export the results in the standard .blt ballot format used by many election systems.
- And best of all, run the election using the Simple-STV and Wright-STV systems.
You can find the template sheet at http://stv.madoverlord.com/. Just make a copy of it in your own Google Drive and start playing with it.
