New Zealand’s local councils have slowly been adopting an STV-based voting system - where voters rank candidates in order of preference, rather than choosing a single person to give their vote to.
To help provide the public with a clearer understanding of the system, I collaborated with designer Thomas Le Bas to extend my earlier Flag Graph visualisation into an informative website that provides interactive examples showing how votes are counted in a few common scenarios.
Following New Zealand’s 2019 local elections, I extended this to produce a series of static charts showing the vote transfers for STV-based mayoral elections.
