SHE Explains how the Proportional Representation Single Transferable Voting System Works in Ireland
This video helps 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. Learn more about how surplus votes and how transfers are key to winning a local election.

Lights, Camera, Action- New Series of Political Videos to help you decide for Local Elections 2024
At See Her Elected we encourage women to engage in the political arena through a series of workshops and practical support. As part of that ongoing support we have worked with the political parties and Independents to create a series of videos which are available here on our website in a bid to help women decide which political party or none they should run for in the Local Elections 2024 and this is another example of the type of practical support we offer women.
This series of videos (in no particular order) from various political parties should help you to decide whether to run for a party or be an Independent or community candidate for the forthcoming local elections. You decide!
