How both votes SNP gave the tories 4 seats in Highland and Islands.

So the Scottish Parliament election has come to an end and the results are in. The SNP increased their vote share and did really well but didn’t manage a majority despite an increase in votes. This is because the current voting system in Scotland is designed to prevent a single party from being able to get an outright majority forcing parties to have to work with others. The 2011 SNP majority was a pure fluke that was never meant to happen and is unlikely to be repeated easily. Why is this? It’s because of the D’Hont system. There seems to be much confusion amongst voters in Scotland over how the D’Hont voting system works, some confuse it with STV while others have little understanding of the formula behind it or simply misinterpret it.
