With Candidate A and Not This Candidate, the election usually takes the form of those in favour of A and those against A, which achieves the same thing.Neil Graham wrote:Do you actually have a vote for "None of the above"? If person "A" stands as a candidate, I would have thought it was a case of voting for him/her or voting against. I was certainly at a BCF Director's election where those voting against a candidate outnumbered those voting for and thus he wasn't elected.John Philpott wrote:Alex Holowczak wroteYes it would. "None of the above candidates" remains an option.Would the vote still be done by First Past the Post?
With Candidate A v Candidate B v None of the Above, as happened with Phil Ehr and Sabrina Chevannes last year, None of the Above received 6 votes. It remains an option on the ballot paper.
If we have three candidates, by extrapolation you have A v B v C v None of the Above.
