- In the second paper, Lee Naish discusses a system of partial disclosure of STV results that can be used to preclude the enforcement of certain coercive voting practices.
- In the third paper, James Green-Armytage reviews software that can be used to count elections by a variety of voting rules, including a number of versions of STV.
- The fourth paper is a response by Thomas Colignatus to the review by Markus Schulze of Colignatus’s book, Voting Theory for Democracy in the previous issue of Voting matters.
