SHE Explains how the Proportional Representation Single Transferable Voting system works in Ireland
We have recently launched a new video to help explain how the Proportional Representation Single Transferable Voting system works in Ireland.
The video was commissioned by See Her Elected as part of their voter education series and as a direct response to feedback raised by women throughout rural Ireland taking part in the online SHESchool training. Produced by the Donegal based DNK Media Productions company, the video explains how the PR-STV voting system works and it features Dr Michelle Maher, SHE Programme Manager, Olivia Bushell, Assistant Deputy Returning Officer and Cllr Hazel Smyth Cathaoirleach of the Mullingar-Kinnegad Municipal District in Westmeath.
See Her Elected created this video to explain the complex voting system in Ireland to local election candidates and their campaign teams but also to highlight to voters the importance of using their vote to create county councils that look just like them.
