comment Can you identify what the sharp spikes in our data could be?
Thank you for your already very insightful answer, very much appreciated. Voters were aware of the running totals, yes. Would be very interested to know how that might affect your analysis/conclusions.

@whuber Thanks for taking the question off hold. I posted here hoping that someone would be able to provide some means of statistically measuring the significance of the sharp increases followed by the plateaus. Is this the correct place to ask a question about crowd voting theory?

@whuber Thanks for your input, sorry I wasn't clear to start with. The y-axis is time beginning at midnight and lasting for 48 hours. The x-axis is cumulative number of votes.

@gung It's not for a course, this is a real public vote and we're trying to analyse the trends that we saw in the data.

Not all attendees were invited. Some have become attendees by their own choice, registration was open.
