If you think some of the candidates are suited to the election, and others aren't, you can vote for RON as one of your preferences. For example, you can vote two candidates 1 & 2, then vote RON for your number 3 preference.
You do not have to vote for RON at all.
What happens if RON wins?
If RON wins the election, a by-election shall be held. New candidates can stand for the election, and the existing candidtes can also re-stand.
