*Voter turnout is calculated based on the elector count on the post-polling day Lists of Electors. These Lists include the number of names on the Lists of Electors after the target enumeration, with the additions of elector information from the revision period, online registrations and polling day swear-ins. Names of duplicated, relocated and deceased electors have been removed to provide a more accurate number of names on the Lists of Electors.
