#### Answer:

Discrete

#### Explanation:

continuous is where you can have any value between given ones. If I am 184 cm tall and you are 160 cm tall the next person could be any measurement between our two heights.

Discrete data is things like trees or desks where you have a whole one and you cannot have a number in between two whole numbers. Each vote represents a person so you cannot have part of a vote.
