The download files above are provided to allow you to create your own database or spreadsheet to further analyse the election results.
The election result downloads have been provided in Microsoft Excel Comma-Separated-Value (CSV) format and Tab-Delimited-Value (TAB) format.
Both of these file formats are text based and can be opened with a simple text editor program like Microsoft Notepad.
The CSV format is most suited to working with spreadsheet applications such as Microsoft Excel.
The TAB format is most useful when you wish to import the election results into a database system.
The best way to download a file depends on your computer, browser and security settings. For example, if you have Microsoft Excel installed on your computer and you click on a link to a CSV download then in most cases the download will open automatically in Microsoft Excel for you. However if this is not the case most browsers provide a feature that will let you download a file. Once you have downloaded the file and saved it to your system you can analyse the election results using the software of your choice.
