The First Past the Post (FPP) electoral system is used for all elections in Northland except for the Northland District Health Board which uses the single transferable voting (STV) electoral system.
FPP is a simple system where electors cast their vote by ticking in the box next to their preferred candidate. When the votes are counted the candidate with the most votes is elected.
You can learn more about FPP at:
