Survey platform for ranked-choice voting?
June 22, 2022 8:18 PM   Subscribe

There are flaws with all the online survey platforms I know. I am trying to use ranked-choice voting for my survey. Can you suggest a platform?

Google Forms apparently does not calculate ranked-choice voting.

Survey Monkey apparently will calculate only an average for the choices ranked, not really handle the instant-runoff type of voting.

OpaVote does does do ranked-choice voting. But the choices are each limited to 50 characters. My longest choices is 48 words.

I am willing to pay up to about $50 for this. But I need to do it tonight!

Response by poster: One of my questions is not RCV, but can be either yes-no or "select all that apply."

Response by poster: I ended up using Zoho Survey. It has rankings, but not ranked-choice. I used a free version. Survey Monkey is $99 for just one month. Its free version doesn't include rankings.

I was going to suggest Survey Monkey, as I use it almost daily for work. But if cost is an issue, then nevermind.

FWIW the ranked-choice option seems to work really well in Survey Monkey.

For the future, I’ve used loomio for a bunch of consensus based voting. If the group you are surveying is known and meets or acts regularly, loomio can be cool.
