The 'votes' style of budget allows a user to select a given number (or range) of options from a list, where each item is considered to be equal or value is not important


The 'knapsack' style of budget allows a user to select options from a list where each item has a value. The budget will have a maximum value that can be allocated across all selected options, and may also have limits placed on the number of options that can be selected (regardless of value)
