Election Results

Jamaland

Jamaland had three candidates running for two senator seats: Ayon Dey ’18, Phillip An ’19, and Dylan Bremner ’20. Round one shows a clear election for Dylan. Thus, by the rules of STV, Dylan’s votes are transferred to their next choice candidates.

After votes are transferred to their next choice candidates, a spelling error is entered into the data. No conclusions can be drawn while this error is in tact.

We fix the spelling error, and now clearly see that Phillip An ’19 is elected to the second seat for Jamaland.


There was an error in polling and Phillip's name was spelled wrong. This graph shows the same as the second, but combines all spellings of Phillip's name. This shows Phillip being elected.

Thus, Phillip An ’19 and Dylan Bremner ’20 are elected as Jamaland representatives.


Loosehead

Loosehead had five candidates running for three senate seats: David Angus Taylor ’20, Dylan Welch ’19, Emily Porter ’18, Jenkin Downey Benson ’17, and Riley Murph ’19.

First, we weed out the write in votes.

Next, we remove Kahlil and Melissa as no one has over the threshold. I removed both of them at the same time (and separately) and saw no change in the elimination of the other.

Takshil now has the least number of votes and is eliminated. No one has over 50% of the votes (or 33% actually). However, Takshil is the last standing OCCO candidate – so Takshil Sachdev ’19 is elected.OCCO/OCNCO Bar Graph - eliminating candidates.

Richard does not have the votes yet to qualify as elected, so we eliminate the person with the least number of votes – Nick Roberson ’18.
