Number crunching

by frog

Here are some of the individual electorate returns from Green campaigns around the country. The top ten electorates for Green votes were:

  • Wellington Central – 6,657 votes, 20.08%
  • Rongotai – 5,407 votes, 16.42%
  • Dunedin North – 4,448 votes, 15.38%
  • Port Hills – 4,406 votes, 13.53%
  • Auckland Central – 4,341 votes, 15.41%
  • West Coast-Tasman – 3,279 votes, 10.23%
  • Christchurch Central – 3,080 votes, 10.79%
  • Mt Albert – 3,065 votes, 10.37%
  • Ohariu-Belmont – 3,007 votes, 8.87%
  • Nelson – 2,949 votes, 8.88%

That’s an amazing result for Sue Kedgley and her team to break 20 percent in Central Wellington.  As with previous elections most of the strong performances come from the urban electorates, although it’s good to see Kevin’s West Coast Tasman team and Diane Mellor’s team in Nelson performing well too.

And our biggest improvers, by vote:

  • Dunedin North – 912
  • Ohariu-Belmont – 833
  • Rongotai – 777
  • Clutha-Southland – 758
  • Dunedin South – 687
  • Ilam – 617
  • Mana – 531
  • Tukituki – 511
  • Rangitikei – 506
  • Hutt South – 502

While the big city electorates still figure on that list there are also some interestingly big gains in areas that aren’t traditionally seen as Green, such as Clutha-Southland, Tukituki and Rangatikei and the Hutt.
