How does MyVote work?

MyVote is a service that enables you to quickly create contests and polls that are accessible for voting on desktop and mobile devices. MyVote collects and aggregates the votes in real time providing live results.

There are three types of contests you can create:

1. Rating Contest where your voters rate items by assigning stars to one or more categories. The number of stars assigned is converted into points and aggregated across all voters to determine total points and average star ratings for items in each category.

2. Ranking Contest where voters rank items in order of their preference under one or more categories. The methodology used to calculate points for each participant is called the modified Borda count (MBC). The MBC is a consensus electoral voting model where voters rank candidates in order of their preference. It is used to determine the Most Valuable Player in Major League Baseball, by the Associated Press and United Press International to rank teams in NCAA sports and to determine the winner of the Heisman Trophy. For details on how the calculation works please see the FAQ - How do you calculate results? or the MBC Wikipedia entry.

3. Classic Poll where you define one or more questions which voters select one or more answers to. All voter selections are aggregated and displayed within the app.
