Northern Territory Times TUESDAY, JUNE 21, 1927 Town Council Election. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 21 June 1927
Jfartljertt aterntnrg Simea TUESDAY, JUNE 21, 1927 Town Council Election. The preferential voting system was invented for the purpose of ensuring that the persons elected shall be cho- sen by an actual majority of the voters. Under the old system, if three persons contested an election, with close voting for all the candi- dates, the person elected very often received only a minority of the votes. Thus, if two of a particular brand of politics were opposed by one of an- other belief, then the election of the latter was a moral certainty because his opponents were divided into two camps. The present election for the Darwin Town Council could easily result in the election of three candi- dates by a minority of the ratepayers. There are nine caadidates but only three are required. Ore side, fairly well organised, has only three candi- dates, and facsimile ballot papers have been published directing their supporters how to vote. In opposi- tion to this bunch are six indepen- dent candid...
