Everyone’s doing it. Choosing a slate of candidates for the October 20 civic election in Vancouver.
But, but, so many choices — even choices of other people’s choices. What’s a poor voter to do?
Never fear. The hive mind has come to the rescue.
Below is a heroic effort by Christopher Porter to aggregate slates into a meta-slate. He’s not only gathered up lots of them (27 as of time of writing); he’s done a tabulation and added up the scores, with colour coding to signal scores’ thresholds. Fantastic work.
The spreadsheet is HERE on Google docs.
The highest aggregate ranked candidates are (drum poll please):
Mayor: Shauna Sylvester 10
- Brandon Yan 21
- Sarah Blyth 19
- Christine Boyle 18
- Derrick O’Keefe 18
- Pete Fry 17
- Jean Swanson 16
- Adrian Crook 14
- Heather Deal 13
- Tanya Paz 13
- Adrianne Carr 12
- Wild Card: Michael Weibe 11
These names are getting familiar.
