I got my 30 page 'How to Vote' booklet today.

Mark an X in the first column for your first choice
Mark an X in the second column for your second choice
If you mark an X in the first column only, that's OK
If you mark an X in the second column only, that's not OK
If you mark more than one X in either column that's not OK
If one candidate gets more than 50% of the X's in the first column, that's OK
If no candidate gets 50% of the X's in the first column, that's not OK
If no candidate gets 50% of the votes in the first column, then the two
with the most X's in the first column are OK and the rest are not OK.
Then all the ballot papers with an X in the first column for a candidate who
didn't come in the first two are examined, and any with an X in the second
column for a candidate who came in the first two are counted and added to
the scores of the first two.
The candidate with the most first and second column X's is then the winner.
OK !
I forgot to mention, if you put an X in both columns for the same candidate, then the X in the first column is OK but the X in the second column is not OK

phoney

It takes some effort on your part to make it more complicated than the official explanation

I was attempting to make it amusing, not complicated.
Obviously failed.

Polling booths or non-existant postal ??

My postal vote came very promptly.

Shame that the brochure telling me what each candidate was standing for didn't come for another week (by which time, knowing how long it could take for my postal vote to get to its destination, I'd posted my vote).



...if you press it, they will come.
