Stage 9: There are two possible configurations for the destiny of the votes transferred from Bradley's surplus (which she had received from Hamilton). Either 238 (35.3%) went to Ramsey (SDLP) and 6 (0.9%) went to SF (5 to McCartney, 1 to Nelis) with 430 (63.8%) non-transferable, or else 476 (70.6%) went to Ramsey (SDLP) and 12 (1.8%) went to SF (10 to McCartney, 2 to Nelis) with 186 (27.6%) non-transferable. My instinct is that the former was the case, with the majority of the votes non-transferable, but I have no evidence for this.
