Article 76

76.-(1) The votes cast for each party and each independent candidate in all nomination districts in a multi-member constituency shall be summed up.

(2) Each number of votes appearing as a result of the summation, cf. subsection (1), shall be divided by 1,4-3-5-7 a.s.o. until such number of divisions equivalent to the maximum number of seats expected to be allocated to the party or the independent candidate has been undertaken. The party or the independent candidate having the highest resulting quotients shall be given the first seat in the multi-member constituency. The second highest quotient entails the second seat and so on and so forth, until all constituency seats in the multi-member constituency have been distributed among the parties and the independent candidates. If there is a tie between two or more quotients, lots shall be drawn.
