Data calculation/treatment

The number of non-voters reported is calculated from the total enrolled population and the number of votes cast by electors enrolled in the electorate.
The difference between the total numbers of voters in this report and in the official results is due to disallowed votes, dual votes and clerical errors in the marking of the master roll.
