Results

To get elected, a candidate needs a set amount of votes, known as the quota. We work out the quota based on the number of votes cast for each position.

Each voter has one vote. Once the counting has finished, any candidate who has more first-choice votes than the quota is elected. If no one reaches the quota in the first round, then the least popular candidate is eliminated. People who voted for them have their votes moved to their second favourite candidate. This process continues until a clear winner is identified.

    NUS Delegates (6 positions) Vote Quota 272.43
    Parvez Pathan 272.43
    Victoria Aurora Bennett-Salvador 252.18
    George West 190.98

    We work out the quota based on the number of vacancies and the number of votes cast.

    Any candidate who has more number ones than the quota is elected. But, rather than ignore extra votes a candidate received after the amount they need to win, these votes move to each voter’s second favourite candidate. This process continues until every vacancy is filled.
