I, Homelycooking, Secretary of Federal Elections, declare the above results to be a complete and accurate summary of the votes cast.

Sometimes a discrepancy results from counting a ballot immediately after it's posted and not noticing if it's edited 45 seconds later. I'm double checking everything right now - results should be certified in an hour or so.

Bacon King is the winner by an unofficial final-round count of 62-59. Official results to come tomorrow evening.

I suppose that it should have. The November 2011 Nathan vs Cincinnatus contest was actually the last Atlasian election not administered by myself. Teddy also apparently misread the law as SoFE, as did everyone else at the time.

I think you're right, BK. Congratulations to the authors of the CESRA for that gem.

That also means that we've been doing elections completely wrong for what? three years now? Fantastic.

Cris has a greater number of "highest preference votes" than you (38-35 at the moment).

If all remaining candidates shall have the same number of highest preference votes, then the following procedure shall be used to break the tie:

No. Cris' greater number of first preferences breaks the tie. The only circumstance in which there would be a runoff, as in TNF vs Lumine earlier this year, is one in which both candidates have the same number of first and final preferences.

Our "election results reporting system" in Connecticut is a fax machine. Unless the Secretary of the State here is capable of making a sudden leap to the 21st century (unlikely), I would rather have unofficial results not be released until the counting and certification process is complete. In 2010 the (Democratic) Secretary of the State called the election for Malloy whilst Foley was still in the lead. She had good reasons for doing so - the vote in Bridgeport hadn't been tabulated yet - but it certainly looked untoward.

Feedback on the new ballot design? I thought that Teddy's old format needed a makeover.

Hmm, did passing gun control save Malloy due to swings near Newtown?

Malloy increased his margin of victory by 20,000 votes from 2010 to 2014. There wasn't a pronounced GOP swing elsewhere in Connecticut from which Fairfield County could have "saved" Malloy. Most of the swing near Newtown is actually from Danbury - its mayor was Foley's running mate in 2010.

I will note, however, that the only Republican state legislator to lose reelection, Michael Molgano, was also the only Fairfield County representative to have voted against Malloy's gun bill.

Is this what you're looking for?
21  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Connecticut precinct results on: November 12, 2014, 07:53:25 pm
And here's the map that I made. Some of the results submitted by various towns are obviously bogus.


Anyone know where I can find data on this...or at the very least for the town level? Ideally looking for something I can put into excel, the only thing I've found is some crappy pdfs on the state website which don't help very much.

Any advice is appreciated.

I made a statewide database of election results back in college. I spent the summer of 2012 contacting every town and city in the state with more than one precinct and spent about $1500 on photocopies, gas and postage. You should be aware of the fact that Connecticut's election reporting is a decidedly 20th century affair.

He's from Warren, which is split between districts 67 and 68. Not sure which precinct he resides in.

24  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: What happened in Vermont? on: November 09, 2014, 10:30:57 pm
When Peter Shumlin was a State Senator, he represented one of the most liberal/leftist regions of New England, let alone Vermont. 83% of voters in his hometown of Putney chose to reelect Obama. Shumlin has never developed much of an ability to govern with respect to the interests of moderate and conservative voters because he has never needed to do so in order to win elections. Recall that in the 2010 primary election for Governor, Shumlin didn't even win a quarter of the vote - five candidates split the vote almost evenly, with Shumlin barely coming out on top due to a huge friends-and-neighbors vote from Windham County.

The fact that Vermont is so electorally favorable to Democrats in a national environment has encouraged him to govern Vermont as if he were representing his Brattleboro-area constituency, by decriminalizing marijuana, presiding over same-sex unions, approving physician-assisted suicide, championing single-payer healthcare, etc. While the national Republican Party may be out-of-sync with the values of Vermont voters, Shumlin's rather far-left program opened up a huge space in the center for a moderate Republican, campaigning on economic issues and taxation, to compete for independent and even center-left voters.
