Stack Overflow Moderator Election 2013

Counting votes using Meek STV. There are 10 candidates competing for 4 seats. The number of voters is 6574 and there were 6574 valid votes.

The bar charts below show the vote counts for each candidate in each round. Place the mouse over a bar to see the number of votes.

A candidate's votes in a round is the sum of the yellow and green bars. Since the green and red bars represent votes being transferred, the sum of the green and red bars is the same.

The exhausted bar represents votes where the voter did not indicate a next preference and thus there were no candidates to transfer the vote to. The threshold bar (where shown) indicates the number of votes that ensures that a candidate will win a seat.
