Need help with comparing proportions with negative cal

Hello! I got referred to here by someone from the econometrics subreddit.

I ran an experiment with a treatment and a control group. Treatment group voted under an electoral rule, where voters could cast a negative vote (with a score of -1) and a positive vote (+1). Control group used the standard First-Past-The-Post rule.

I want to compare the results of extreme parties (I know which those are) and see if the difference is significant. However, these extreme parties obtained a negative result, so a normal test of proportion doesn't work. What do I do?

      I am a university student, I am afraid I can only offer symbolic amounts of money.
