Has taken me a good four hours this evening. I very carefully ordered every candidate in all the elections, using my own personal criteria.

I'm not going to give you the full running order, but for the big three, my top choices were
- FE: Caron Lindsay
- FPC: Richard Flowers
- FCC: Zoe O'Connell

My method, if anyone cares, was to group candidates into lettered groups, and then rank them within the group. Candidates who didn't answer my/Andy's questions were ranked n for neutral, and then within n by what I know about them. Candidates whose answers I really liked got put in group a; those I quite liked in b or c; those I thought were ok in d to f. Candidates whose answers I didn't like got put in group x, and candidates whose answers I thought were truly awful in group z. Then it was a simple matter of hitting "sort alphabetically"...

It was genuinely worth answering the questions that I and Andy put - one person I had never heard of before this election ended up getting my second preference for FPC - and I was not the only person using candidates answers to rank them, from the thanks I have received in blog comments, by twitter, and by email.

Good choices. Were I a voting member they'd have been my first preferences too -- though there were a lot of good candidates.

Cheers, Jennie. Three cheers, even.

I am extremely grateful for your support. Means the world to me (as does that of everyone who has voted for me, especially the ones who've let me know I received their first preference).

Plus, all the work you've put in to running what amounts to an online hustings for all the candidates. Very useful. (((HUGS)))

(And yes, it takes bloody ages to work out all the prefs doesn't it!)

I used a similar system and, whilst I cut it a bit fine time-wise, the Questions and Answers were incredibly useful.

Had to rush the FPC vote, so missed the nuances in ranking that may have been present had I more time, but confident that my favoured candidates all in the right sort of position! And yes, the three you mentioned were top (or very nearly top) of my rankings too.
