For those who grow weary of reading cheery or teary holiday stories here is an astringent change of tone. The stats and just the stats for the November 2008 election are presented for holiday reading suitable for political junkies. Many of us wonder not only who won and who lost the supervisorial races, but how the choices ran in various districts. Who was close and who was left out in the cold? Did some candidates run in tandem with voters choosing the pair for first and second place? Ranked choice voting has given statisticians a chance to chew over numbers for hours. This may be a minority taste, but we are grateful to David Latterman and to S.F. Usual Suspects for giving us the chance to look at as much or as little as we can handle. Thank you all!
