Democracy relies on fair and free elections, but how does the voting system affect the outcome? Across the UK, a variety of different systems are used, but which is the fairest and/or most effective?
In this hands-on workshop, Andrew Potter (School of Mathematics and Statistics at the Open University) will help you discover the maths behind electoral systems by counting paper ballots in a mock election count. Come and see how different systems can return very different results!
