If there was any discussion of how STV implicitly means that there is only one vote counted no matter how many available seats there are, I don't remember it and can’t find it in the ac-forum archives.  I regularly kick myself for not thinking through how STV works with one vote per available seat (or not) and getting clear answers before voting for Process 2017.

We are implementing STV in exactly the same way that we did when we were 
piloting it.  Noone suggested during the pilot hat there should be a 
separate STV vote for each seat.  That is why I raised the issue with 
the Process CG.
