DISTRIBUTION OF VOTES
Official counts have now been completed in all electorates, and although the'totals credited to the various candidates have been altered considerably, only in one case has a preliminary result been altered. That is in the case of Manawatu, where the checking of votes disclosed an error of approximately 100 votes. Valid votes cast totalled 851,723, and these were distributed among the partiesias follows:—
Labour (53 seats) 389,912 Nationalist (19 seats) ....' 280,267 Democrats (no seats) .... 64,518 Communists (no seats) *. 620 Others (8 seats) 116,406 The "others" include Independents, Country Party, Ratana, and Independent Country Party. Of. the 265 candidates who went to the polls 71 failed to record more than one-fourth of the votes recorded by the winning candidate, and thus forfeited their deposit of £ 10. The Treasury benefits to the extent of £710.. Thirty-two out of the 51 Democrats who stood failed to save their deposits. The. complete list of those who-forfeited their £10 is as follows:—.
