Electronic counting

Electronic counting is being used at a number of counts at this week’s elections across Scotland, England and Wales.

London Elects 2012 (the independent team that organises teh Mayor London and London Assembly elections) produced a detailed – ie, eight minutes long – overview of the electronic counting process. While awaiting confirmation of Boris’ margin of victory, I know some Slugger readers will be keen to increase their political trivia … particularly since MLAs, Electoral Commission and EONI staff are observing electronic counts as part of an investigation into the suitability of e-counting for Northern Ireland elections.

Comment on cinema, books, technology and the occasional rant about life. On Slugger, the posts will mainly be about political events and processes. Tweets as @alaninbelfast.
