Mandates are allocated in a regional constituency to political contestants using D’Hondt divisors (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, et seq.) for the initial allocation and Sainte-Laguë divisors (1, 3, 5, 7, 9, et seq.) for allocating mandates to political parties within a coalition. The vote totals of electoral contestants are divided by the divisors to arrive at a series of quotients for each political subject. Mandates are allocated to the highest quotients in sequential order.
