Filling in count data
Took count data from here: http://www.rte.ie/news/election2011/results/dublin-south-central.html
I'm unclear as to how 3 candidates were eliminated after the 7th count (Oisín Ó hAlmhain, Peter O'Neill, and Neville Bradley). Did some or all of them concede at that point?
Filled in count #1 data for all candidates, and complete count data for Noel Bennett, Neville Bradley, Catherine Byrne, Colm Callanan, Michael Conaghan, Michael Mulcahy, Gerry Kelly, Paul King, and Sean Connolly Farrell.
I'm done for now, if no one else has filled the rest in by tomorrow, I'll finish it.
- On the seventh count question, rte's correct. Standard practice in the rules of STV counts is that multiple candidates can be eliminated if it's impossible for any of them to overtake the candidate above them. In this case, their combined vote was 2025 and the candidate above them had 3010 votes so they were all eliminated in one hit. Valenciano (talk) 10:45, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
