About This Viz

The client was developing a pairwise voting application to promote fair process in decision making within organizations. It works kind of like the eye doctor (do you like this or this better? what about this or this? – always a binary choice, until you’ve been asked all/enough permutations – to enable fair process decision-making. A score is assigned, based on the ratio of yes to no votes.

Thus each choice can have a number of yes votes and a number of no votes (depending on whether it was preferred over another choice).

How it Works


Each wedge represents a choice. Starting at the 12 o’clock position, the choices are arranged clockwise from highest score to lowest.

translucent disk

The edge of the translucent disk is like an x-axis – the no votes are covered underneath it and the yes votes lie outside of it.

radio controls

The radio controls in the table are actually for the widget, to show the number of votes as well as to cancel yes/no votes and make apparent why the highest score is the highest score.
