I find this thread useful, informative and interesting.

It feels weird saying that here without any sarcasm.

I'm frightened.

Irish Times, Newstalk, Independent and Sunday Business Post (and now also Irish Examiner) #ge16 candidate lists are out of date / incorrect misleading voting public

RTE is correct as far as I know, but try and find the actual notice of poll

http://www.inou.ie/press/2015/05/05/paid-positions-in-polling-stations-and-counting-centres-for-may-22nd-2015-referendums/ Returning Officer list http://www.environ.ie/en/Publications/LocalGovernment/Voting/FileDownLoad,44070,en.doc


only person checking his facts is Adrian Kavanagh https://adriankavanaghelections.org/2014/10/22/officially-declared-candidates-for-the-20152016-general-election/

Wikipedia dail constituency pages are quite useful too.

type in the name of the constituency in the Wiki search box and put in "Dail constituency" after it in brackets.

First time poster so not sure if it is in the correct thread. Can someone please explain to me how the transfer of votes works. i hear the term transfer friendly frequently so does this mean voting pacts between parties/individuals? Thanks in advance

Transfer friendly doesn't just depend on party pacts - geography and the profile of the candidate (either National or local) all play a part in this. Is often said SF are transfer toxic, but it seems to be becoming less so as time goes by. Labour lost the bulk of the transfers that got them to 37 seats last time.

If you mean the mechanics, then it is Single Transferable Vote meaning you rank your candidates in order of preference and as the count proceeds and candidates are either elected or eliminated, that vote is transferred to other candidates according to the voter's stated preferences, in proportion to any surplus or discarded votes.

To reach a quota ie be elected in a 3-seat district you would need 25% of the vote + I vote. If a candidate has more votes than that quota, then the surplus votes are transferred to the next candidate. If no one new meets the quota, the candidate with the fewest votes is eliminated and those votes are transferred, and the process repeats until a winner is found for every seat or there are as many seats as remaining candidates.

You can rank as many candidates as you like, and they can be all from the same party, or a mixture, or you can just give one preference. That would be silly though, because it leads to your vote being exhausted after it is allocated to that candidate.
