Election STV Iteration Report

David Friggens made this Official Information request to Southern District Health Board

Southern District Health Board did not have the information requested.

From: David Friggens

Dear Southern District Health Board,

I couldn't find any results from the recent DHB election on your website. I might have missed something, but there is a page that appears to be where I would find them if they were there [1].

Could you please make the STV iteration report available to me, by return email (if quicker) and/or through your website. Specifically, the information I would like in the report is the quota, non-transferable votes and each candidate's votes, for every iteration of the count.

If different formats are available, I personally would prefer a machine-readable format - XML (like Kapiti Coast [2]) or CSV - but if publishing on the website it would be useful also to have a human-readable PDF or RTF as most STV councils (like Palmerston North [3]) have done.

Yours faithfully,
David Friggens

Hi David,

At the end of last year a Bill was passed at Parliament that made the Southern District Health Board exempt from the 2016 DHB elections. The Board of Southern DHB was removed by the Health Minister Jonathan Coleman on 18 June 2015 and Kathy Grant was appointed as Commissioner, taking up the role on 18 June 2015. The Bill extends the Commissioner's term until the 2019 DHB elections.

Kia ora Sarah,

Thanks for the reply. It would probably be advisable to update the several election related pages on the website to say something other than information "will be added as soon as they are confirmed".
