In the United States, it is not uncommon to find private organizations and award-giving bodies using Borda’s method. Job applicants are also being ranked in many businesses using the system.

Engineers are now using the data coming from an electronic system’s sensors as a source of an “unbiased vote” when a machine needs to come up with a decision (“Borda Count Elections,” par. 5). Examples include handwriting recognition and space navigation.
