The dotted line represents the number of votes that guarantees victory (20.1%).

Iain Black (Liberal) has enough votes to guarantee victory and is declared a winner. To ensure that everyone's vote counts equally, votes that exceed that threshold are counted toward their next highest ranking, if possible. This is actually done by counting a fraction of the ballots most recently counted for the winning candidate.

The dotted line represents an elected member's equal share of the votes (20.1%).

At this point, the number of remaining candidates equals the number of remaining seats, so the remaining candidates are declared elected.
In the end, 87.6% of all cast ballots counted toward a winner. This compares to 58.3% if only the first-round votes were used. You should be able to see that the winners have a more equal mandate in the final round than in the first round.

The Ballot Depth section shows how much lower rankings contributed to the tally.
