Episode 2: Universal RCV Tabulator

iTunes | SoundCloud | Google Play

On this episode of RCV Clips, Chris Hughes and George Gilbert talk about the Universal RCV Tabulator. The Universal RCV Tabulator is software that can tabulate ranked choice voting elections.

The software is in its prototype stage now. As its development continues, it will be able to take voting data from any major voting system used in elections today to calculate RCV elections. It is being developed for Maine's 2018 RCV Primaries right now, and more RCV counting rules will be added once the Maine rules are fully tested.
