Selectricity

Selectricity (formerly HyperChad) is a Web-based voting system that supports anonymous and voter-verifiable balloting, and includes an election-methods library that implements a variety of election techniques, including several preferential systems. Unlike most voting projects, Selectricity does not attempt to address the issues raised in mainstream political elections. Instead, it provides a simple set of tools that small groups and organizations can use to incorporate computationally complex decision-making into new areas, and for purposes where they ordinarily would find such decision-making prohibitively complex. By supporting a variety of election methods, it provides a way for users to explore and compare the effects of different voting systems and, ultimately, come to better decisions.
