Please notice that I don't have a clue on the various advanced voting 
methods. ;-)

But I found this:


As the count is underway BBC Parliament considers the electoral system 
for the Northern Ireland Assembly.

The Good Friday Agreement of 1998 determined that elections to the 108 
seat assembly should be by the Single Transferable Vote (STV) system.

This form of proportional representation (PR) was deemed most suitable 
for reflecting the voting preferences of diverse constituencies choosing 
from a variety of parties.
