Fun with numbers - local elections

Shirish Paranjape from Shirish Paranjape, Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board

I was playing with some numbers, so thought I will share here - for those keen. This is just for fun, not a scientific analysis!

All three councillors from Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood received in excess of 70% votes; hence clear margin over rivals. On the other hand, the closest race was in … View more
I was playing with some numbers, so thought I will share here - for those keen. This is just for fun, not a scientific analysis!

All three councillors from Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood received in excess of 70% votes; hence clear margin over rivals. On the other hand, the closest race was in Halswell where the two top candidates have 3756 and 3580 votes (less than 200 margin).

Cr. Aaron Keown got more votes as a Council candidate (5309) than as a Community Board candidate (4605). On the other hand, Cr. Catherine Chu got less votes as a Council Candidate (2392) than as a Community Board candidate (2779).

Perhaps Gamal Fouda (Community Board - Riccarton) is the 'luckiest' candidate - getting elected with 'just' 1113 votes. This is because the top ranked Community Board candidate also won as a Councillor, hence 'vacated' the Community Board member seat.

Christchurch had 41.07% voter return. The wards with highest voter turnout are: Banks Peninsula (52.7%), Cashmere (48.85%) and Fendalton (47.57%); while the least turnout was at Linwood (33.23%), Central (33.43%), Riccarton (35.30%).
