Last time I feel like the vote went really well for the most part but had 2 pretty major flaws. First we all didn't know each other too well and that made the democratic system a lot less effective. Second, being able to see who people vote for severely effected at least a few people.
The first issue definitely is gone now. As for the second issue I think this time we ought to do the vote in private. We really have two options on how to do a private vote. We could either use a program like straw poll to run it, however this could have serious consequences with voter abuse, or we could use a person to run the vote. However this could have serious consequences with distrust if not everyone agrees on the person. I'd like to believe You guys could trust me with such a thing, but I am worried that self electing myself here would be pressuring people who are not ok with it to be ok with it.
i am ok with it not being anonymous. I dont understand why some people would be 'severely' affected by others seeing their vote.
Well essentially a few players had changed votes directly due to what other people had voted for. On one occasion it was about elevating themselves, on another it was about getting to vote for the guy who is most likely to win. As comedic as that second one sounds I can't help but believe that was actually happening several times; Its just I know for a fact that it happened with at least 1 person when I asked why he had changed his vote.
Secret ballots make the most sense. There's a reason we do it in the real world, and there doesn't seem to be a reason to have your vote be public unless you're really concerned about people rigging a vote to be GM on an EUIV game.
I'm appalled by the use of FPTP. Why use such an antiquated voting method?!
It's disgusting. It's a spit in the face of democracy itself. Why aren't we allowing third party options!? How about a half-secret ballot or a semi-secret public ballot or even a super-secret ballot!? Where are the choices? This is ridiculous.
