Abstract

This article examines the introduction of the single transferable vote for the Scottish council elections of 2007. It suggests that the new system had a variety of effects barely-noticed by the media – there was, indeed, a quiet revolution – and that these will resonate in Scottish local government and politics for a long time to come.
