Advantages – Public Elections

Some advantages of STV

  1. STV motivates political parties to contest every seat and there would be no area they could afford to ignore.
  2. STV elections cannot be won by influencing only a few swing voters in marginal seats.
  3. Under STV, MPs would be more accountable to voters.
  4. STV can give voters a choice of candidates within a party; e.g., pro and anti Europe or Old and New Labour.
  5. Because STV lets voters list as many as like they of the candidates in order of choice, they never need to waste their votes or vote tactically.
