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
