Our elections are undertaken using a single transferable vote (STV) system. This means that you can vote for your first preference, and then your second preference, and so on. For a fun tutorial video (produced by our collegues at Lincoln Student Union) on the transferable vote method, please see here.
Or to see how the single transferrable vote system works with a role that can have many winners (like our Student Officers), please see this video produced by the Electoral Reform Society.
