Notes[edit source]

There are three combinations for using the valid or the invalid parameters:

  • If neither the valid nor the invalid parameters are used, the sum of yes and no votes should equal the number of total votes. Consequently, the sum of yespct and nopct should be 100%.
  • If only the invalid parameter is used, but the valid parameter is not, than the sum of yes, no, and invalid votes should equal the number of total votes. Consequently, the sum of yespct, nopct, and invalidpct should be 100%.
  • If both the valid and the invalid parameters are used, the sum of yes and no votes should equal the number of valid votes. Consequently, the sum of yespct and nopct should be 100%. The sum of valid and invalid votes should equal the number of total votes. Consequently, the sum of validpct and invalidpct should be 100%.

It should be noted that the order of the yes and no parameters does not affect the display of the template. If the number of no votes is higher than the number of yes votes than the template will display the no votes first to indicate that the referendum failed. An editor may however wish to list this parameter first.
