Subject Questions about Derby logo contest
Date Tue, 29 Nov 2005 19:33:54 GMT
There was an aborted logo contest earlier this year. What happened to 
the entries? Should they be submitted to the current contest?

Also, what form will the voting take and how will a winner be 
determined? The usual way to run an election is to let every voter 
pick one candidate, and for the winner to be the one that gets the 
most votes. This system can be problematic when there are a lot of 
candidates - it's possible that no candidate will have a majority. We 
solved this in the original logo contest with a run-off election 
among the top three vote-getters (only necessary if no candidate had 
a simple majority, which happened to be the case in that election).
