    import java.util.Scanner; //Brings in a libary that is needed for the Scanner class
    import java.text.*;
    public class PrimaryElection
    {
    static public void customFormat (String pattern, double value )
    {
    DecimalFormat myFormatter = new DecimalFormat(pattern);
    String output = myFormatter.format(value);
    System.out.println(output);
    }

    public static void main(String[]arge)
    {
    int nya; //New york votes
    int nym; //New your votes
    int nja; //New jersey votes
    int njm; //New jersey votes
    int ca; //Connecticut votes
    int cm; //Connecticut votes
    double totalsAubrey; //Total aurbrey
    double totalsMartinez; //Total Martinez
    double totals; //Total
    double PercentagesAubrey; //Percents
    double PercentagesMartinez; //Percents
    double TotalPercentages; //Percents
    Scanner keyboard=new Scanner(System.in);

    //Get votes for Aubrey and Martinez in New york.
    System.out.print(" election results for New York?");
    System.out.println();
    System.out.println("Aubrey:");
    nya=keyboard.nextInt();
    System.out.println();
    System.out.println("Martinez:");
    nym=keyboard.nextInt();
    System.out.println();

    //Get votes for Aubrey and Martinez in New Jersey.
    System.out.print("election results in New Jersey?");
    System.out.println();
    System.out.println("Aubrey:");
    nja=keyboard.nextInt();
    System.out.println("Martinez:");

    //Total votes for Aubrey
    totalsAubrey = nya + nja + ca;
    //Total votes for Martinez
    totalsMartinez = nym + njm + cm;


    //Display the resulting information.
    System.out.println("Totals");
    totals = nya + nja + ca + nym + njm + cm;

    System.out.println("TotalPercentages");


    System.out.print(nya + nja + ca);
    System.out.print(nym + njm +cm);
    System.out.print("TOTAL VOTES");
    System.out.print(totalsAubrey + totalsMartinez);

    //int at = (totalsAubrey/totals);
    //int mt = (totalsMartinez/totals);
    //customFormat("##.#",at);

    System.out.print("Percentages Aubrey");
    System.out.print("Percentages Martinez");



    }
    }




    System.out.println("Canidate" + " " + "Votes" + " " + "Percentage");
    System.out.println();

    Default Re: Primary Election program

    Can you explain what the problem is? If there are errors, copy the full text and paste it here.

    One problem I see with what you posted is the end of the code is missing.

    Please edit your post and wrap your code with
    [code=java]
    <YOUR CODE HERE>
    [/code]
    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
