Ordering Candidates for Board Election

Interesting and useful website. Generated random order series for displaying candidate info for election to the board of a lifelong learning institute at George Mason University in Virginia (USA). Daughter Jessica is a Trinity alum—MBA. Looking forward to returning one day to Dublin. Thanks for the assistance!

—Richard and Brenda Cheadle

Random Ballot Ordering

I help out with a internet poetry workshop and community called Neopoet. We elect members every three months to a board which governs the site.

I discovered Random.org while stranded in an airport lounge on the eve of our first election. I was waiting for my delayed flight while I realized I'd forgotten to randomize the ballot order. I pulled out my Blackberry and started searching for a way to generate random numbers. I quickly found your Random Sequence Generator. I wrote down the candidates on a slip of paper, then the assigned sequences from your site.

I was able to update the ballot just as the election was about to begin, and just a moment before the final boarding call was announced.

Random Seating of Court-Martial Panels

Dr. Haahr, I have attached an article about how the U.S. Army used your website to successfully seat random court-martial panels in Germany. I credited you for establishing and maintaining Random.org at footnote 56.

Generating Names for Computer Games

I'm using your random number generator to pick first and last names for characters from a spreadsheet for a computer game called ‘A Force More Powerful’—a game designed to teach nonviolent resistance groups how to fight for democracy without using violence.

American Government Simulation

We use the random number generator for determining what events take place in our simulated political landscape. The administrators develop probabilities of likely outcomes of a certain event, then use the random generators to determine which events take place. It's very useful, thanks!

Voting Theory Project

My name is Patrick Ayers, a Junior in high school in Florida.

I am doing a research project on voting theory, and I used numbers from Random.org to order candidates on the ballots as well as assign which group of voter would use which system of elections.
