Windermere is the only ward in the City of Greater Geelong with two councillors due to its smaller population. The 2017 result in Windermere showed Anthony Aitken achieve 0.86 quotas on his own, over double the votes of any other candidate. As the clear front-runner he was easily elected into the first position early in the count.
The race for the second position was very open with a number of candidates finishing on a very similar number of votes between 0.2-0.4 quotas.
Kylie Gryzbek was ultimately elected in the 21st count on the exclusion of Jordan Grossman. She was 2,033 votes ahead of the only other candidate left – David Withington. She was helped along by strong preference flows from Jordan Grossman and Marina Kozul.
The graph shows the primary vote for each candidate, what order they were elected in, the number of quotas they received and the percentage of the vote. In a contest with two vacancies, one quota is approximately 33% of the vote.
These graphs show the key preferences that went to the successful candidates from other candidates.
