Note: If this doesn't make sense, try reading the How it works page, view the table form, or ask a question.
The dotted line represents an elected member's equal share of the votes (25.2%).

At this point, the number of remaining candidates equals the number of remaining seats, so the remaining candidates are declared elected.
In the end, 88.8% of all cast ballots counted toward a winner. This compares to 51.4% 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.
