Election Web Service

Election Web Service exposes implmentations of various election methods through a JSON interface by way of python-vote-core. The purpose of this is to eliminate the need to implement language-specific versions of these methods.

For example, one could calculate the results of a SchulzeSTV election in their Java app by $erializing the ballots in JSON, making a request to the webserver, and unserializing the results.

Installation

python webserver.py

Basic Usage

curl -d '{"voting_system": "stv", "ballots": [{"count": 4, "ballot": ["orange"]}, {"count": 2, "ballot": ["pear", "orange"]}, {"count": 8, "ballot": ["chocolate", "strawberry"]}, {"count": 4, "ballot": ["chocolate", "sweets"]}, {"count": 1, "ballot": ["strawberry"]}, {"count": 1, "ballot": ["sweets"]}], "winners": 3}' http://vote.cognitivesandbox.com;
