Using Selectricity

I'm entering a unit on elections in my Math for Liberal Arts class. There are a lot of slick tools out there to run online polls like PollDaddy. I was having trouble finding any tool that allowed user's to fully order their preferences... until Selectricity. It's a really great tool, particularly if you are studying elections. Check out this poll, it allows you to see current results, and the current winner under a number of common election systems: Borda, Condorcet, etc. Anyone can create an election without registering. For more extensive security measures, register for a full account. All free!
