Publication of STV voting preferences (from May 2012)


Returning Officers across Scotland have today published the preference voting information from the May 2012 local government elections.

This is now required by law, thanks to the Scottish Local Government Elections Amendment (No. 2) Order 2012.

This Order required the publication by Returning Officers of information about the patterns of preferences marked on the ballot papers in Local Government elections.

The data for Edinburgh is now available to download from the elections area of the Council website, with a separate spreadsheet for each Ward: just follow this link for the explanatory information.

Ward 9 - Fountainbridge/Craiglockhart - data (as an EXCEL Spreadsheet) is here ...

... but, be warned, several hours required if you really want to analyse all of this ;-)
