Over the last several months, I've been busy-busy helping with Hatnote work, and specifically building Montage, the new judging platform for Wiki Loves Monuments 2016. The process was full of surprises, and one of the most pleasant of which was the opportunity to research voting systems.
At the time, the topic of voting systems seemed niche, but as November came and went, interest shot up and stayed up.
Most literature you'll find about voting centers on large-scale political arenas. While Wiki Loves Monuments is large in the scale of its submissions, the opposite is true for contest jurors, our voting population, who number between 3 and 30. And unlike a presidential election, all contests have multiple winners. How many public office elections do you know where the winners can outnumber the voters?
So choosing our approach became a matter of design.
