Voting systems in SharePoint

  Asked By: Angelique    Date: Apr 20    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 6148

Does anyone know if there are any voting system web parts for
SharePoint? The sorts of systems I am thinking of are not just the first
past the post type systems that could be created using surveys but more
complex systems such as single transferable vote etc.

Have you tried with InfoPath 2007 creating a complex browser enable form? as
more robust form of survey...

To be honest I hadn't thought of that but it's a good idea. The voting
system that my colleagues are particularly interested in is called ATV
but I can't remember what the A stands for. Anyway, it involves some
calculation once all the votes are cast and they are transferred from
the person with the lowest votes until one person has 50% + 1 vote. It
seems a complicated system  but perhaps it can be implemented using
Infopath. I was hoping to avoid web  part programming as I suspect I
wouldn't be able to do that.
