Voting Proposals

Polling

A poll that has been collaboratively designed, that shows the preferences of the local groups. The date should be chosen by the Borda-Count. So every group has a number of points they can give to their favorite dates. The points are added up from all people, and the highest Sum is chosen.

Unlike other popular voting systems, in the Borda count it is possible for a candidate who is the first preference of an absolute majority of voters to not be elected; this is because the Borda count affords greater importance to a voter's lower preferences than most other systems, including other preferential methods such as instant-runoff voting and Condorcet methods.

The Borda count tends to favor candidates supported by a broad consensus among voters, rather than the candidate who is necessarily the favorite of a majority;[1] for this reason, its supporters see the Borda count as a method that promotes unity and avoids the 'tyranny of the majority', and the resulting divisiveness and even violence that it can lead to. Advocates argue, for example, that where the majority candidate is strongly opposed by a large minority of the electorate, the Borda winner may have higher overall utility than the majority winner.

Strike number counting and date setting

A way of including every local group in the process of finding the next strike date, by also increasing the response rate and accuracy of strike number counting. Long version here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1p1YPEsa5Fw0bQZrKCDvJW22b8L602ghh

Strike numbers and Citizen Assembly

A group of 40 people will be deciding, which dates to choose. A list of possible dates and reasons for or against that can be provided by everyone. The 40 people will be chosen nearly randomly, as a form of citizen assembly.
