Elected candidate – This candidate is declared elected.

Excluded candidates – These are listed from the last candidate excluded during the STV counting process to the first – in reverse order of exclusion.

  • The first 'excluded' candidate listed was excluded last.
  • The last 'excluded' candidate listed was excluded first.
  • Candidates with the fewest numbers of votes are excluded first. After a candidate is excluded from the counting, his or her votes are redistributed to the other candidates still in the race in accordance with individual voters' preferences.

Iteration: Refers to the number of times the votes are counted until the required amount of candidates are elected.
