Datasets containing anonymized votes for a past Council election of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS).

data("ims_score")

Format

A data frame with 620 observations and 10 candidates (names were made up). Each record corresponds to one ballot. Values depend on the voting method. The IMS Council voting is done using the STV method, and thus the ims_election dataset contains ballots with candidates being ranked between 1 and 10 with zeros allowed.

Source

The original dataset (which was randomized and anonymized, with write-in votes removed) was obtained from the the Institute of Mathematical Statistics.
