This vote uses a Single Transferable Voting (STV) system, which is a simple form of "preference voting", so that voters can cast first, second, third, and more preferences for their vote. If a majority can't be reached, the last choice is eliminated and the count starts over looking for the highest preference. More information on STV and other voting systems can be found at:
This vote was handled by Vote::STV (a Perl module) by Ian Kluft. Source code is available at http://www.kluft.com/~ikluft/opensource/code/
The following tables show in detail how the results were obtained. Each of the "rounds" shown were separate passes through the data by the vote-counting software. Multiple passes are necessary to count an STV-style vote.
