Dear Wiki user,

The following page has been changed by JimJagielski:
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/BoardElectionVoteCounting

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  
  This means you can vote for Mr. Wonderful along with everybody else and after he's elected
there is a reasonable chance your ballot will live on to help elect a candidate other than
your first preference.
  
+ Some hints:
+    o If you really don't want somebody on the Board, then omit them entirely, rather than
putting them at the end.
+ 
+    o Although there are 9 slots available, you can vote for as many people as you want -
even votes after the 9th may end up being significant. Note that people you don't want elected
should not appear on your list at all.
+ 
+    o AND RECALL: ORDERING IS CRUCIAL !!
+ 
  This voting architecture is excellent for helping to break up the tendency of elected bodies
to settle into one or two power blocks; at it's also helpful for breaking up the power of
incumbents to attract strategic voters.  Its downside is that you can end up with a board
with nine members all of whom were elected by very narrow constituencies to which they are
extremely loyal - that can make it hard to reach any consensus.
