Voting Systems:  X Mark, AMS, SV, AV and STV Voting

The DRS e-Counting system has proven to be fast accurate and reliable in the counting of complex X Mark elections including AMS and supplementary voting systems (SV voting) as well as preferential voting (1,2,3) such as STV and AV.  DRS e-counting can cater for:

  • X Mark voting - the voter puts an X against one candidate only
  • AMS voting / additional member voting  - a hybrid system that is part FPTP (First Past The Post) and part closed party list
  • SV voting / supplementary voting –  there are two columns on the ballot paper, one for first choice another  for second choice
  • STV voting / single transferable vote - each voter has one vote, which can be transferred from their first to their second preference   
  • AV voting  / alternative voting - the voter ranks the candidates in order of preference 

DRS can also work with other voting systems. Contact us if you have specific requirements.
