The Voting system Community Group has been proposed by Jean-Charles Verdie:
There has been lengthy and recurrent discussions about reforming the voting system for AB/TAG elections.
The current system is allegedly broken as it is stated by various members, but the AC is not willing to work on this unless someone comes up with a comprehensive explanation and proposal.
There are many alternatives:
* pick up one alternative voting system
* work on a tool to create simulation
* use this tool for **non official** ballot at the same time as an official ballot (which would be used with the current systen)
All of these items have been proposed in various email threads in w3c-ac-forum and public-w3process list, not repeating the links here for the sake of conciseness.
You are invited to support the creation of this group. Once the group has a total of five supporters, it will be launched and people can join to begin work.
Once launched, the group will no longer be listed as “proposed”; it will be in the list of current groups.
In order to support the group, you will need a W3C account.
If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please send us email on email@example.com
