The dotted line represents an elected member's equal share of the votes (21.7%).

At this point, the number of remaining candidates equals the number of remaining seats, so the remaining candidates are declared elected.
In the end, 87.7% of all cast ballots counted toward a winner. This compares to 50% 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.
