The Single Transferable Vote VT is used during elections to explain to the viewers how the voting system works.

Current Version

The current version was masterminded by Sarah Leese in 2006, and starred Vanky, Ed the Duck, Sweep, Selbysaurus, Margaret Thatcher and Neil Kinnock. The latter 5 were represented by glove puppets (Ed, Sweep), small stuffed dinosaurs (Selbysaurus), and Kev Larkin's slippers (Margaret, Neil).

Sweep won the election, as the votes transferred from Selbysaurus being eliminated jumped him ahead of Ed the Duck.

The VT was produced specifically without being dated, so it could be used time and time again.
