How To Read These Tables

The percentages in the first column, labeled "Total," show the proportion of the electorate that is in each subgroup -- these columns are always read down vertically.

The percentages in all remaining columns are read across horizontally (those to the right of the "Total" column). These percentages show how the particular subgroup of voters divided their vote among the candidates or vote question.
