A Guide to the Supplementary Voting System

April 2017

We said Nudge Knowledge would allow us to indulge our collective inner Nudge Factory geekiness. This briefing note certainly does that. It is a follow up to our series on the forthcoming Metro Mayor elections and looks at the method used to elect those Mayors: the Supplementary Vote system.

We include sections on: what SV is; how it works; where and when it is used; what previous results using the system look like; and what it might mean for the Metro Mayor elections in May.

As usual, please feel free to quote or share. However, if you do use material from the briefing, please do give us a credit or reference.
