Choose-one and Approval ballots are often shown as some form of:<blockquote>Alicia[X] Brandon[] Charlie[] David[] Eileen[X]</blockquote>meaning "Alicia and Eileen are supported by this voter"<blockquote>or Alicia>Eileen=(approval threshold)>Brandon=Charlie=David</blockquote>meaning "Alicia is my 1st choice, Eileen is my 2nd choice, I approve everyone who is my 2rd choice or higher, and all the other candidates are worse than my 2nd choice"
 
Ranked ballots are often shown as:<blockquote>Alicia>Eileen>Brandon=Charlie=David</blockquote>meaning "Alicia is better than Eileen, Eileen is better than any of (Brandon, Charlie, David) and Alicia is also better than any of (Brandon, Charlie, David)". or

!1 voter

|Alicia

|2nd
|Eileen
|-
|3rd
|Brandon, Charlie, David
|}
which means the same thing.
 
Rated ballots are often shown as:<blockquote>Alicia:5 Eileen:4 Brandon:3 Charlie:3 David:3</blockquote>meaning "I give Alicia a score of 5/I give Alicia 5 points, Eileen 4, Brandon 3, etc."
 
Note that with rated ballots, one might mention what the scale is by putting, for example, Alicia:5/5 (meaning Alicia is a 5 out of 5).
 
It is customary to, instead of repeating the same ballot type multiple times, simply type the number of voters who cast a ballot of a certain type. For example, instead of<blockquote>A>B>C
 
A>B>C
 
A>B>C
 
D>E</blockquote>One can simply write<blockquote>3: A>B>C
 
1: D>E</blockquote>
