    @StéphaneChazelas On this site, I expect everyone to apt-get install openstv or pkg_add openstv or similar. Reminder: the command is wget -O unix-2.blt http://unix.stackexchange.com/election/download-result/2 && openstv-run-election MeekSTV unix-2.blt Jun 24, 2014 at 22:30
  • I actually couldn't find a package for my distro (Gentoo), but the github code includes a runElection.py that seems to match up with openstv-run-election Jun 24, 2014 at 23:35
