Vote for your favourite pizza using STV and FPTP

You have the right to vote for your favourite types of pizzas among the selections that I have chosen. Click the link above to vote using the Single Transferable Vote (STV). Click the polls to the right to vote using First-Past-the-Post (FPTP). On May 12, you and your friends will be able to enjoy three imaginary pizzas as chosen by the people taking these polls. For the STV rank order poll, there are three political parties with three candidates each and one independent. The three political parties are the Meat Lovers, Vegetarian, and Cheese Plus. In the FPTP polls, each party has one candidate. The independent candidate is running in one of the Pizza Order ridings.

Vote for your favourite pizza parliament using STV and/or FPTP. Three imaginary pizzas will be offered based on the results for STV and FPTP.

Vote for your favourite toppings!

PS: You may pick off the imaginary toppings if you wish after you receive your pizzas.

Very good! And fun too!

With FPTP, so far everyone is gonna be stuck with vegetarian - which is fine with me cuz I'm a vegan. However, that's not fair and like most Canadians fairness is a value I hold high.

The other choices are locked out and thus wasted. Not nice. Not fair.

I don't know what the results will be under STV and FPTP. Under FPTP, there could be three vegetarian pizzas which may not please the meat lovers. At least under STV, there might be a broader selection of pizzas that might satisfy everyone at the imaginary pizza party.

Have tweeted (twittered?) your post. Should get some extra traffic over the next day or so.

Thanks for the tweet, Chrystal. This is one blogpost that I will be repeating every couple of days. I will also be including it in the comments section in different blogs that mention BC-STV or FPTP. I won't go crazy with it--just enought to get my two sets of polls on the radar.

For everyone,

You may vote in the STV poll once every five minutes. You may only vote once in each of the FPTP polls (unless you feel like voting in each in Internet Explorer and Firefox).
