Preferential Voting (Single Transferable Vote)

Typically used in elections, the single transferable vote (STV) counting method is a voting system designed to achieve proportional representation, through voters ranking candidates in constituencies.

Voters rank candidates by choice, in order of preference. As results are tallied, votes transfer from the lowest-voted candidate upwards until a winner is achieved.

A minimum number of candidates can also be specified i.e. voters are required to vote for a certain number of candidates to fulfill the requirements of the election.

Weighted Voting System

Our weighted voting system allows for voters to participate as separate classes. In the case of shareholder or creditor voting, a vote weight is applied proportional to the number of shares each stakeholder owns.

Supplementary information about each candidate can also be included in the voting screen, so that voters can make an informed decision before ranking candidates.

Candidate Management

The one-stop-shop for candidates hosted on the Horizon State Platform. Allow voters to make informed decisions before they vote by providing candidate information to the platform. Voters are given this information again when they cast their vote.

The candidate management tool is ideal for displaying the following information:

  • the candidate’s name
  • the candidate’s photo
  • the candidate’s bio
