A bill was unanimously passed by our Associate Students senate to implement the Single Transferable Vote (STV) which ensures a more proportional election through the ranking of candidate choices. With STV, you, the voter, have the opportunity to rank your candidates by preference. A mathematical formula known as the Droop quota will be used to calculate the minimum a candidate needs to get elected. If one candidate reaches the minimum, then all of their extra votes go to their second choice. If no candidate reaches the minimum, then the candidate with the least number of votes is eliminated and their votes are redistributed amongst their second choices. If John Citizen is already elected, the vote shifts again. PLEASE rank the candidates fully to allow the new voting system to work in the most democratic way possible.
For more on how STV works you can refer to CGP Grey’s Politics in the Animal Kingdom video:
We ask that you contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the process. Thank you for decision to get involved at UCSB!
