The Voting System
We operate a Single Transferable voting system. This system, also known as STV requires voters to rank the candidates in order of preference. Under STV, votes are initially allocated to the voters most preferred candidate and, as the count proceeds and candidates are either elected or eliminated, votes are transferred to other candidates according to the voters stated preferences.
