Do you have to vote in an election for 3 candidates to have your votes counted?
Because I'm only voting for 2 candidates, will my vote be counted at all?
No you don't have to vote three times.
If there are any candidates you don't want to vote for just use your 1st and 2nd choice votes as appropriate.
