I am missing the voting method mentioned somewhere. There is the "Then 
select your preferred candidates in order of preference." sentence but 
no explanation how the preference actually affects the result. I would 
add something like

The voting method is single transferable vote (STV) so in the end only 
one of your candidates gets your vote (in the order of your preference).

Anyone else thinks it is important enough to be included or is it too 
complex and would confuse the matter? I am trying to prevent possible 
confusion. Without knowing the method people might think that by making 
the list of candidates the vote would somehow be proportionally counted 
for more/all candidates on the list or whatever.
