The Count

At the first stage, the voting papers are counted to determine the total valid votes and then calculate the quota for election. Any candidates who have at least met the quota of first preference votes are deemed elected at this stage.

The decision at every stage thereafter is whether to exclude a candidate who cannot be elected or take away the surplus of a candidate who has been elected. The decision is based on the gap between the candidate with the lowest number of votes (there can be more than one) and the next highest candidate. If that gap exceeds the total of remaining surpluses to be redistributed, then an exclusion can be made.

Exclusions

More than one exclusion can take place at the same time. All papers transfer at exactly the same value as they were at the start of the stage, e.g. if a candidate has four papers – two at a value of one and two at a value of 0.4, the papers transfer to the next preference with the same value. The papers should be transferred in the order of highest value first (e.g. 1’s first 0.4’s second).

Surplus

Only one surplus can be transferred per stage. Papers that transfer may change value; e.g. a candidate has a score of 12 and the quota is 10, there is therefore a surplus of 2. If four papers transfer, each paper is worth 2/4: 0.5. The total worth of all transferring papers is therefore 2 (the surplus). To calculate the surplus of votes transferred all of the candidate’s papers are resorted according to the names of the candidates marked on them as second preferences.

Surpluses and exclusions continue until the correct number are elected.
