From BBC News:
The Electoral Reform Society has hailed Scotland’s council election as a resounding success.
The organisation has suggested that there were “major inadequacies” in the vote for the Scottish Parliament, which saw more than 140,000 rejected ballots.
However, a report from the society will say that the single transferable vote (STV) system used in the council election worked well.
It wants Holyrood to adopt the STV method, a call backed by the Lib Dems.
Research carried out by the BBC has shown that the proportion of spoilt ballot papers was far lower for the council election on 3 May.
