Cambridge School Committee Unofficial Election Results

The above results, which include ballots scanned at the precincts on election day plus write-ins and auxiliary ballots, are unofficial as of Nov. 7, 2007. Results will not be final until provisional ballots and overseas absentee ballots are counted on Nov. 16.

In the Proportional Representation Voting Method, voters rank candidates. Once any candidate reaches a threshold of top choice votes, he/she is immediately elected. Any number one votes on ballots beyond the quota will be given to the number two vote on that ballot. Any candidate with less than 50 number one votes is eliminated; those ballots are given to the number two vote. The candidate with the lowest number of votes at this point is eliminated and his/her votes go to the next preference. Candidates are elected by reaching quota after each elimination and redistribution.
