Electoral officer, Dr John Annabell says the outcome of this election may change once special voting papers have been counted.
The computer software used to calculate election results for the Councillor election means that candidates with enough support to be elected do not keep more votes than they need to be elected. Rather, the excess votes they receive are redistributed, in order of voter preference, so as to help elect other candidates. At the other end of the scale, where no candidate has sufficient support to achieve the quota and there are still vacancies to fill, the least popular candidate is removed from the count and, again, their votes are used to assist other candidates in being elected. This is done on the basis that it is impossible for that candidate to be elected, even if all remaining votes were transferred to them.
For the election of Palmerston North City Councillors 58 iterations of the voting cycle took place.
The full results can be found at http://www.pncc.govt.nz/yourcouncil/citycouncil/elections/election-results-2013/
The total voter turnout was 38.4 per cent. At the 2010 election voter turnout was 42.8 per cent.
Dr Annabell says the successful candidates will take up their positions on Sunday 20th October subject to the final results being advertised on 19th Saturday October.
