Only the eliminated candidateâ€™s second choices are counted. Not everyoneâ€™s. It doesnâ€™t matter if any of Tedâ€™s or Jimâ€™s voters have Ed as 2nd place if Ed isnâ€™t in the top 2.
Is this right? Or do the second preferences of all candidates get counted in the second round?
Second, are you allowed to “plump” on the ballot or are you required to rank the candidates from 1 to 3?
Not that any of it matters, I hope that people mark 1 for Morton and 2 for Stelmach. But it is important to know how the ballots will work. As we know, the party organization is just looking for excuses to prevent rural Albertans from voting.
