the Isle of Man

A general election was held on the Isle of Man on 29 September 2011 to elect 24 members to the island's lower house, the House of Keys. 60,000 residents were eligible to vote, including 16- and 17-year-olds. Successful candidates were sworn in on 4 October 2011.[1] A total of about 34,000 people voted in the election, but some of these were in multi-member constituencies and therefore cast more than one vote. The figures in the tables below under "Turnout" show the total numbers of votes cast.
