STV - It's Simple To Vote
It is simple to vote with STV. Instead of putting a tick beside the candidates you want to vote for, you rank them with numbers.
In an STV election, candidates must reach a certain number of votes to get elected.
Voting is easy with STV. The vote counting is more complex and that's why a special computer programme has been developed.
