Yes, they are.
Counting numbers are a proper subset of whole numbers which are the same as integers which are a proper subset of rational numbers.
I would hope all elections use rational numbers: all Counting numbers are Rational numbers.
-3 is a real, rational, whole integer. But then, -- All integers are real rational whole numbers. -- All whole numbers are real rational integers. -- All rational numbers are real. -- All counting numbers are real, rational, whole integers.

Rational numbers, nonrational numbers, integers,whole numbers, and counting numbers.
They are not. They are countably infinite. That is, there is a one-to-one mapping between the set of rational numbers and the set of counting numbers.
First of all counting numbers (positive integers) are rational numbers so without rational numbers there would be no counting. You could not equitably share one item between two or more people without fractions (rational numbers). Everything does not come in whole numbers - there are times when you need half-a-day, or 2.5 teaspoons, etc.
Every counting number, and the negative of it, are real, rational integers.

No, it is a rational number. Numbers in the form of a/b, where a and b are integers, are called rational numbers. 0.666... can be written as 20/3. So it is a rational number.
