The dotted line represents the number of votes that guarantees victory (27.5%).

In the first round, the first choices on each ballot are tallied.
Mischa Popoff (Conservative) 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.
