Description

The Centre for Election Science is a nonpartisan nonprofit organization comprised of voting system experts and activists. The organization promotes better collective decisions in settings ranging from student organizations to government bodies. The video explains the concept of ‘approval Voting’ with friendly fruits and vegetables, hinting at the Bush/Gore election of 2000 without directly referencing the situation. The goal of the video was to gain funding for further initiatives and spread the message that elections should be run more fairly.
