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.
