Python based election methods, includes python-vote-core and python-graph-core.

Project description

python-vote-core implements various electoral methods, providing the results calculated off a provided set of ballots and options.

Methods implemented

  • Single Winner Methods
    • Plurality (aka first-past-the-post or fptp)
    • Instant-Runoff Voting (aka IRV)
    • Schulze Method (aka Beatpath)
  • Multiple Winner Methods
    • Plurality at large (aka block voting)
    • Single Transferable Vote (aka STV)
    • Schulze STV
  • Ordering Methods
    • Schulze Proportional Representation
    • Schulze Nonproportional Representation

Basic Usage

Schulze method example:

>>> from pyvotecore.schulze_method import SchulzeMethod
>>> ballots = [
...   { "count":3, "ballot":[["A"], ["C"], ["D"], ["B"]] },
...   { "count":9, "ballot":[["B"], ["A"], ["C"], ["D"]] },
...   { "count":8, "ballot":[["C"], ["D"], ["A"], ["B"]] },
...   { "count":5, "ballot":[["D"], ["A"], ["B"], ["C"]] },
...   { "count":5, "ballot":[["D"], ["B"], ["C"], ["A"]] }
... ]
>>> SchulzeMethod(ballots, ballot_notation = "grouping").as_dict()
{'actions': [{'edges': {('A', 'B')}},
  {'edges': {('A', 'C')}},
  {'nodes': {'A'}},
  {'edges': {('B', 'C')}},
  {'nodes': {'B', 'D'}}],
 'candidates': {'A', 'B', 'C', 'D'},
 'pairs': {('A', 'B'): 16,
  ('A', 'C'): 17,
  ('A', 'D'): 12,
  ('B', 'A'): 14,
  ('B', 'C'): 19,
  ('B', 'D'): 9,
  ('C', 'A'): 13,
  ('C', 'B'): 11,
  ('C', 'D'): 20,
  ('D', 'A'): 18,
  ('D', 'B'): 21,
  ('D', 'C'): 10},
 'strong_pairs': {('A', 'B'): 16,
  ('A', 'C'): 17,
  ('B', 'C'): 19,
  ('C', 'D'): 20,
  ('D', 'A'): 18,
  ('D', 'B'): 21},
 'winner': 'C'}
