Prof WNElection Issues 20:   Again, who gets elected from the Party?

Many voters are still confused about how the “successful” candidates will be decided by the Elections Office.

Many are still thinking that the Party’s Preferred List and ranking of candidates will be used to decide who are elected.  NO. NO. NO.

Whether any candidate is elected will be decided not just by how many votes the Party receives in total, but also by how many votes the candidates themselves receive relative to their fellow candidates.

Let me simplify the article I had written previously, which was too long for many readers and had too many lessons in it (even if they were all important).

Eliminate Independents and Parties below 5% threshold
