How Voting Works


Why do we use STV?

Single Transferable Voting, wastes fewer votes – the person who voted for Tarzan is not ignored because they voted for an unpopular candidate, their second choice decides the election! So basically, STV, gives voters more opportunities to influence the election and let’s them get their second or third preference when they can’t get their first. This means that voters do not have to vote tactically – they can just choose their favourite.
