Jay, who ran for president in 2004 under the Personal Choice Party banner, won the BTP’s presidential nomination with 76% of the vote. None of the Above finished second with 24%, and Robert Milnes finished third with 14%. The reason the percentages total more than 100% is because the BTP used “approval voting,” which allows electors to vote for as many candidates as they like. In all, 37 people voted in the presidential contest.
