  8. 8. Source: Will Myddeletonhttp://www.slideshare.net/myddelton/the-alternative-vote-system-in-practice<br />The AV Ballot<br /><< 2nd preference<br /><< 1st preference<br />Before we begin, a quick recap on how the voting process works. <br />In AV, voters rank candidates from favourite to least favourite.<br />(This is very different to marking an “X” for a single candidate)<br />
  9. 9. Source: Will Myddeletonhttp://www.slideshare.net/myddelton/the-alternative-vote-system-in-practice<br />Round 1<br />The election began by adding up all of the 1st preferences.<br />At this point, David Miliband led with 37.8% of the votes.<br />But you need at least 50% to win, so it went to Round 2.<br />
  10. 10. Source: Will Myddeletonhttp://www.slideshare.net/myddelton/the-alternative-vote-system-in-practice<br />Round 2<br />In Round 2, Diane Abbott was knocked out for finishing last.<br />Her votes were shared out based on their 2nd preferences. <br />Again, nobody had more than 50%, so it went to Round 3.<br />
  11. 11. Source: Will Myddeletonhttp://www.slideshare.net/myddelton/the-alternative-vote-system-in-practice<br />Round 3<br />In Round 3, Andy Burnham was eliminated for finishing last.<br />His votes were redistributed based on their 2nd preferences. <br />Still no candidate had more than 50%. So on to Round 4.<br />
  12. 12. Source: Will Myddeletonhttp://www.slideshare.net/myddelton/the-alternative-vote-system-in-practice<br />Round 4<br />In Round 4, Ed Balls was eliminated and his votes were shared out.<br />Ed Miliband now had more than 50% of all the votes counted.<br />So, despite trailing in all previous rounds, Ed Miliband won.<br />
