More about STV voting
How STV works
STV is a proportional electoral system where electors rank candidates in order of preference. Electors have a single vote (regardless of the number of vacancies) and they have to cast that vote by ranking, in their order of preference, as few or as many of the candidates as they wish.
STV voting is easy – you rank your preferred candidates with a number for each position, starting with 1 - so it’s a number NOT a tick.
You don’t need to number every box – just the candidates you prefer, in the order you prefer.
• Place your vote in the prepaid envelope
• Drop it into the nearest post box or deliver in person
