471 people were content to vote for only one candidate even though there were four to chose from. We can see too how the figure drops rapidly away. 2888 people didn't want to make a fourth choice and look how it drops away even more dramatically after that. At least more people bothered to go to the poll this time 52% as opposed to 44% in 2012.
