The results of the election
All votes of candidates on the same list are counted together and thereafter personal result figures are counted from the total amount of the list´s votes. The candidate with most votes on the list gets the amount of total votes as his/her personal figure. The second on the list gets half of that, the third gets a third of total votes and so on.
A candidate who is not member in any electoral alliance gets his /her total amount of votes as personal result figure.Ehdokas, joka ei kuulu mihinkään vaaliliittoon eli listalle, saa vertausluvukseen oman henkilökohtaisen äänimääränsä.
When all votes and figures have been counted, 20 candidates with highest personal result figures will be elected in the council.
