Colgate University used OpaVote for a faculty election in March 2013.
OpenSTV 2.1.0 released and new OpaVote features
OpenSTV 2.1.0 is now available for download! As most of my work in the last year has been on improving OpaVote, there are not a lot of new features for OpenSTV. The primary new feature is the ability to save election results in HTML format with pretty bar charts. You can also now save Condorcet results in HTML format but still working on the best graphics to visualize Condorcet results.
The most exciting new feature for OpaVote is full encryption for election voting pages! Since voting pages are now encrypted with SSL, OpaVote can be used with confidence even for elections where people are motivated to try to cheat the system. The weakest link in an OpaVote election is now the security of the individual voter's email accounts.
Also, I am finally joining the social networking craze and have created accounts on Facebook and Google+ for OpaVote and OpenSTV. I would appreciate it if you could:
- Plus one the G+ page here: https://plus.google.com/111850198888069322953/posts
- Like the Facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/opavote
Feel free to follow me as well if you are interested in keeping up to date on all the exciting new features for OpaVote and OpenSTV.
Last but not least, if you purchased OpenSTV in the last 60 days, I'll be happy to give you a free upgrade to the latest version.
Thanks for your support,
