Accumulation charts for instant-runoff elections

  title={Accumulation charts for instant-runoff elections},
  author={Bridget Eileen Tenner and Gregory S. Warrington},
We propose a new graphical format for instant-runoff voting election results. We call this proposal an "accumulation chart." This model, a modification of standard bar charts, is easy to understand, clearly indicates the winner, depicts the instant-runoff algorithm, and summarizes the votes cast. Moreover, it includes the pedigree of each accumulated vote and gives a clear depiction of candidates' coalitions.
