BONUS GE2020 EP: How Does My Vote Work?

Should you vote all the way down the ballot? Should you give a candidate a preference even if they’re in bits? What’s a quota? How does a surplus get distributed? How did we end up with this voting system? Get ready to nerd out with our special How Does My Vote Work episode. We headed out to UCD to talk to an unsung hero of Irish democracy, political scientist Professor David Farrell. In this episode, David answers your questions about voting, our voting system, how the count works, and more.
