When you go to vote, you will be asked to rank candidates in order of preference (1st, 2nd, 3rd etc.). This means you don’t have to just choose one candidate, but you can use your vote to list in order of who you would like to see be elected.
Re-open Nominations (RON) is also an option in each election. This is for when you do not want to vote for any of the standing candidates and who would prefer a new election to be called.
For example, let’s say Candidate A, Candidate B and Candidate C are all running for election. On the ballot you will see all three names and manifestos, alongside RON. If you liked Candidate C’s manifesto the best and want them to win the election, you would vote them #1 – first. Then if you preferred Candidate A to succeed over Candidate B, you would vote Candidate A #2 – second as your next preferred choice. You can do this for all of the candidates listed on that particular election.
