Inside the polling place
Voting in the local council elections couldn’t be simpler: ●Voters will use the Single Transferable Vote (STV) system. You vote by using numbers.
●You will be given one ballot paper that lists all the candidates standing to be councillors in your ward.
●Number the candidates in order of your choice by putting the number 1 in the box next to the name of the candidate who is your first choice, 2 in the box next to your second choice, 3 in the box next to your third choice, and so on.
●You can make as many or as few choices as you wish.
