      One less stumbling block over the VOTING SOFTWARE bugaboo.

       

      From a Representative at Dominion:

      "Dominion's new system, Democracy Suite, is expected by the summer of 2013 to have federal certification to be ready to run ranked choice voting elections, with features including ranking more than three candidates, having ranked choice data be exportable into a spreadsheet format and tallying programs to allow for the single transferable vote method of proportional representation."

       

      Translation of the explanation is that they will be able to run RCV elections for both single seats and multiple seat winners (single member districts and multi-member districts).  Election Machine Vendors have always been a problem for us.   It is good to see that there is some movement on the issue and acceptance within the big companies (since they seem to be the only game in town most of the time).
