Graph of Seats versus Votes Overall, for Existing 'Winner-take-all' Single-member Districts & for Hare-Clark PR Districts
The graph shows that under the existing single-member district system, the Liberals, with 55.7% of seats, gained well over 50% of seats (an absolute majority) even though the voters gave them only 44.0% of first preference votes - well short of 50%.
