== Process ==


The AMT Board Consists of 5 members. We’re going to use a [[wikipedia:Condorcet%20method|Condorcet voting process]]. Everyone gets to rank the available candidates from 1 to 10 (or however many there are), then some complicated algorithm determines the result that everyone hates least (aka most fair). The nomination process takes place between now and June 13, with voting taking place on the June 20 meeting. Candidates can announce their candidacy any time. Don’t nominate yourself. No robots, or humans with more than 49% robot content (by volume OR by mass).

To be eligible to vote, you must be a full member (not provisional member) of Ace Monster Toys in good standing (paid dues recently). You must vote in person or give your proxy to another member to vote for you.

== History ==

We did all of this in [[2012 Board Election|2012]] and [[2011 Board Election|2011]].

== Vote Calculator ==

Here is an [http://www.cs.iastate.edu/~yaping/Condorcet/condorcet/ application to count the votes]so that I don’t have to learn the algorithms by hand.Site dead. [http://www.cs.cornell.edu/w8/~andru/civs/civs_create.html Here’s a new one]

Rank each candidate by how much you like them, highest number is best (so if there are 12 candidates, and you liked Bob the best, you’d write 12 next to him)

Write the rankings separated by commas: 5,1,2,3,4 — means you liked the first guy best, and the second guy worst, etc

== Sample Vote ==
Give the following 6 candidates:
* Bob
* Jack
* Sally
* Bill
* Jimmy
* Carol

Your favorite is Bill, so you give him the most points by putting a 6 next to him, then you go down, putting a 1 next to your least favorite, Jimmy.

* Bob 4
* Jack 3
* Sally 5
* Bill 6
* Jimmy 1
* Carol 2

Now you take the numbers and put them on a single line:


And that gets entered into the vote calculator
