Poll: How do you think we should vote for councillors?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Whangārei District Council has decided to keep its First Past the Post system for the 2022 election, but voters could demand a poll that could see the system changed to Single Transferable Vote, if there is enough support. In brief, First Past the Post is where voters give a tick to the candidate they support, and the one with the most ticks wins. Single Transferable Vote is where voters rank candidates in terms of preference, and the one with the most overall support wins. Which do you think is best for Whangārei - please explain your answer in the comments below.
