STV polling methods
Library to perform STV Poll calculations. The package was created as part of the VoteIT project, specifically to handle larger elections that was hard to count with Markus Schulzes STV method.
Typical usage would be primary elections or elections with many winners from a pool of many candidates. The result will be proportional.
- Scottish STV
Work in progress:
- CPO STV
from stvpoll.scottish_stv import ScottishSTV example_ballots = ( (('orange',), 4), (('pear', 'orange',), 2), (('chocolate', 'strawberry',), 8), (('chocolate', 'bonbon',), 4), (('strawberry',), 1), (('bonbon',), 1), ) poll = ScottishSTV(seats=3, candidates=('orange', 'chocolate', 'pear', 'strawberry', 'bonbon')) for (candidates, bcount) in example_ballots: poll.add_ballot(candidates, bcount) result = poll.calculate()
This will return a ElectionResult object that contains the result and some useful metadata. The elected attribute contains the elected candidates.
Candidates to the left have higher preference, so: [‘pear’, ‘orange’] means ‘pear’ before ‘orange’ etc. The number is how many of that kind of ballot there is.
result.elected [<Candidate: chocolate>, <Candidate: orange>, <Candidate: strawberry>]
