The current system forces some the electorate to vote tactically against a candidate instead of for someone or their party.  It's like voting for the least bad egg.

The single transferable voting system allows you to vote for your preferred candidate.  On the voting slip you would indicate your first choice, 2nd, 3rd and so on. If none of the candidates get over 50% of the vote then the 2nd choice votes for the one who has the least is counted as if it was their 1st choice.  This is continued until a candidate has more than 50% of the vote.

This is better than a straight proportional representation system as it is less likely that extreme candidates would win.
