We were inspired to create a new and innovative way of voting that was more representative to the general populous by the youtube channel CGP Grey
What it does
Its a voting system that removes gerrymandering and allows for voters to be fairly represented.
How we built it
We used an Arduino to make the voting buttons, and used Python to make a script for the voting algorithm that determines the winner. We also created a website using HTML to demonstrate the concept.
Challenges we ran into
We ran into several problems with the Arduino, where in many cases we could not figure out how to code in the button responses.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We managed to successfully make a prototype of this system.
What we learned
As beginners we learned many different coding languages such as CSS, HTML, Python and Arduino.
What's next for STV Voting System
We hope for implentation in small groups.
