STV Voting made Simple

The Council elections use STV, Single Transferable vote. Which means that you get to select your preferences in order of preference…From the most preferred at No.1 to your Least preferred as last preference.

You don’t need to use up all your preferences…you can choose not to go past your top preferences and just leave the rest blank… But that may play into the hands of those you don’t want later.. So USE ALL Your preferences…even if it means giving last preferences to those you don’t want. It doesn’t work in their favour, but works against them.

SNP 123…Green 4, SSP 5,  Libdem 6, Lab 7, Tory/UKIP 8

In places where Independents are running…. place them in front of Unionist parties and behind Indy supporting ones..

MAKE YOUR VOTE REALLY COUNT

About auldacquaintance

I am not a member of any political party. I am however a strong supporter of Scots Independence. Any views which I express in this Blog are purely my own. This Blog intends to be a place where I will be putting my views on Scots Independence. It will primarily concern itself with the upcoming Referendum In Scotland. However It will also be somewhat diverse in the range of day to day issues which are evident to me in modern day Scotland. Not all of it will be political, and indeed may take me off into avenues I am not even aware of yet. Please come and join in on this journey, and any comments are welcome provided they are not abusive! All the best from a new acquaintance! Rod

  1. Well here is where I eat a large portion of HUMBLE PIE and I deserve it.My error was in the word preference if I never preferred a person or party then my vote stopped where it was.So I apologise to all that I have disagreed with over STV and to those that I have advised,and I thank those that have corrected me. The STV system has a sting in its tail and I have had to change my mind and intentions,we could’ve let a Tory in by NOT VOTING them last that’s the sting in the tail,always meant to stop us the common people we need to change the system when we can.I’ll now share this to Facebook with thanks to Rod for writing it simply,for folk like me,or not like me.

    • It is a system that up until now folks haven’t really thought about. Namely because in the past turnout for Council elections have been nothing short of woeful.
      But it takes a different meaning now as the Torys have been making it all about a referendum and nothing whatsoever to do with local issues. Labour are facing humiliation and the loss of their Glasgow City fiefdom.
      While for the SNP…it is huge for wrapping up all sections of government in Scotland to push for better government
