Individual board votes released

All individual votes in the Board of Trustees election have been released. From these votes, other voting methods can be compared to the voting method selected for the 2008 election, the Schulze method. We tested the votes using approval voting (the method used in prior elections) and Instant-runoff voting. (Because it's impossible to tell how many candidates each voter approves of, for the purposes of this comparison we assume that any candidate marked as the first choice for an individual voter is "approved"). Neither of these methods result in any changes in the top three positions, though some lower positions do result in slight changes. The results are below.
