This is me being daft, but ...

I voted in this election. Instead of putting a kiss 'X' in the box we were asked to rank candidates 1 to 11. You didn't have to rank them all.

What was the point of that when there's only one candidate to be elected? STV seems unnecessarily complicated for 1 position.

I also noted that there were advertising A boards outside the polling station advertising each candidate, fair enough. But A boards are banned in Edinburgh by the very council I was electing someone for.

Here's a list of all the candidates.
  • ALEXANDER, Steven - UK Independence Party (UKIP)
  • CALDWELL, Jack - Scottish Liberal Democrats
  • GARDNER, Nick - Scottish Labour Party
  • ILLINGWORTH, Kevin - Independent
  • JACOBSEN, David Don - Socialist Labour Party
  • LAIRD, Tom - Scottish Libertarian Party
  • MCCROSKRIE, Dan - Scottish Conservative and Unionist
  • MUNN, Rob - Scottish National Party (SNP)
  • SCOTT, John Ferguson - Independent
  • SLATER, Lorna - Scottish Green Party
  • STIRLING, Paul Mitchell - The For Britain Movement
Some of the nasty bastards actually got votes!

I think they normally elect 4 but because it’s a by-election only 1 was elected,won’t change the system of voting for a one off.
