Voting Systems

Membership organisations normally pick a voting system at inception for board elections and then find it delivers an inconsistent or unwanted result.  For example, some voting systems are designed to increase diversity, while others are designed to increase the likelihood of consensus.   Organisational inertia then prevents anything other than cosmetic changes.

This problem grows in complexity when the elections need to take into count different constituencies electing different board members or different electors having a different number of votes.

We can help you get it right from the beginning, and help you change voting systems when you need to.  Rather than starting with a proposal for a particular voting system, as is so often the case, we follow a framework we have developed over a numbers of years to determine the specific attributes that meet your organisations needs and then choosing a voting system that best suits those requirements.
