Watch: The local election database started by an American professor (Times of Malta)

New-to-me: the country of Malta has an online elections database. “Over the coming days, a dedicated team at the University of Malta will be updating the Malta Elections database with the outcome of the general election but Josef Lauri, a maths professor, is keen to add even more functions to the site. The database is a goldmine of information which was started by an American professor of political science, John Lane, who came to Malta around 30 years ago for a sabbatical and was intrigued by the very rare ‘single transferable vote’ system.” The headline makes it look like this is a video-only story but it isn’t.
