Counting Better Voting Methods. The Ancient Greeks used Pebbles to count Ballots, today we use computers to count ballots, but the method of counting them is the same, and throwing Pebbles into Urns is more secure than many of our voting machines. Vote For One, Most Votes Wins only works well when there are only two choices. With Ranked Ballots Voters can express a list of preferences. Vote::Count is a Perl library for tabulating Election Results with Ranked and Range Ballots.
