fair & equitable: What's not fair and equitable about the current vote counting system? One vote per person (IP) with multiple votes removed—I don't see how that can be improved.
public: I'm going to assume here that you mean show the vote counts as each ballot is submitted. If you think about it, this idea brings a tons of problems. But before that, let me ask you this: Do you think there's a reason why the results to political elections aren't "public" until the time period of voting ends? Showing the votes as they are submitted can result in:
1) Voters being swayed
2) Site needs to constantly refresh the vote totals, possibly making it slower
3) Strategical/Anti voting will increase now that people know roughly how much a character needs to win or lose
There are probably more, but the bottom line is, making vote counting public is something that should never happen.
4) I believe part of ensuring that there aren't any fake votes is keeping the vote checking method a secret. IP is part of it but I'm sure there's more.
5) and i haven't seen any voting activity irl which updates their voting counts during the voting period - coz this is not a poll - all voting activity that i know always announce the vote result sometimes after the voting session has just ended
btw partial result announcement few hour after the matches is fun i think - especially before the 'flip' hour reached, because it will raise the surprise material
