    The Depth Chart measures overall popularity.


    The Depth score is the sum of votes grouped by rank position, divided by rank number.

    For example, consider a candidate with three 1st place votes, five 2nd place votes, eight 3rd place votes, and three 4th place votes.

    Group Sum/Rank Position = Rank Depth
    3/1 = 3.00
    5/2 = 2.50
    8/3 = 2.667
    3/4 = 0.75

    The overall sum rounds up to a Depth Score of 8.92

    The Depth Score is used to assign colors and break ties when choices receive equal numbers of first place votes.

    Hovering a mousepointer over a candidate's Depth Score segment displays votes by rank.

    The Irving Chart shows how a consensus emerges.


    Totals are displayed in segments ordered left to right by 1st place votes. If no candidate suprasses 50%, the last candidate is eliminated and a runup begins.

    When a candidate is defeated, supporters move to their next remaining eligible choice. If no lower-ranked choice was given, or no eligible choices remain, the vote moves to a "no preference" segment.

    Each successive runup is displayed above the previous one.

    The bottom half of the runup shows movement from previous rounds. The top half shows the number of preferential votes accumulated by the remaining candidates. The Runup cycles repeat until support for a candidate surpasses 50% of votes cast.

    Rolling a mousepointer over a segment displays underlying details. Since this tabulation process is often called an Instant Runoff Vote, this chart is called an IRVing Chart.
