Where is Oliver going to direct his preference votes, and why?

Answer

As a genuine Independent candidate, I am running on an open ticket. Other than asking people to vote for me first as number 1, I am not strictly guiding people as to who they should put as number 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6.

I would think, however, that people might like to put their second vote for the candidate representing the party that they think would deserve their vote if I am not ultimately successful. This may or may not be the party or candidate that they have traditionally voted for in the past. We will be providing a ‘split ticket’ How to Vote card with guidance along those lines.
