The dotted line represents the number of votes that guarantees victory (14.3%).

Margaret MacDiarmid (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.

The dotted line represents the number of votes that guarantees victory (14.3%).

Mel Lehan (NDP) has enough votes to guarantee victory and is declared a winner.
In the end, 83.9% of all cast ballots counted toward a winner. This compares to 60.5% 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.

Note that even the "highest first-round votes" method is more democratic than most methods used in US public elections: the "vote for 6" method, which allows the largest block of voters to dominate, and the district method, where choices are restricted to the one or two viable candidates within geographical boundaries drawn by the politicians in office.

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