The dotted line represents an elected member's equal share of the votes (50% of counted votes).

At this point, the number of remaining candidates equals the number of remaining seats, so the remaining candidates are declared elected.
In the end, 41.7% of all cast ballots counted toward a winner. This compares to 26.6% if only the first-round votes were used.
