Elections in Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland elects on a provincial level a legislature. The Northern Ireland Assembly has 108 members, elected in 18 six-member constituencies with the single transferable vote method.

There are also local government and European Union elections, which also use the single transferable vote electoral system, and Westminster elections, which use the first-past-the-post electoral system.
