The KEWG Pacifica Bylaws are moving! Beginning March 31, 2014 the Pacifica Bylaws in HTML format will be available only at Cosmic Terror Presents. Also important! Due to changes made to the Pacifica Bylaws the STV Manual is no longer applicable to IRV (single office) elections! Beginning March 31, 2014 the STV Manual (as is) will be available by request only!
KEWG has written a manual for tallying an STV election, especially tailored to elections by Pacifica boards and committees.
