Improving precinct-summability example[edit source]

@BetterVotingAdvocacy: an example of summing from precincts is a great idea, I had someone ask me for one the other day, actually, but I don't think this example is very easy to follow. I'd like to see something like the "star voting: precinct sum" image from https://www.equal.vote/star-vs-irv#simplicity, and with a small set of short, more abstract candidates like https://star.vote/wa17e1cn/ or https://star.vote/x1h3w5fk/

Ideally it would show a few ballots from one precinct and how those combine into the two tables, then show a few tables from (maybe 2) other precincts and how they combine in the central location, and then how they are tallied. Something that people can easily wrap their heads around. — Psephomancy (talk) 05:14, 9 April 2020 (UTC)

I've made an edit along the lines of what you asked, let me know what further improvements you want. I've avoided making it too long, so most of what you mentioned is just written out as text rather than showing all of the different matrices, with the exception of showing how to get the final result.
