PNG Elections Provincial and Electorates - Data Visualisation Invalid Votes


Video shows data of past PNG Elections ACTUAL Ballot Votes from 1972 to 2017

There is an increasing number of voters as indicated by the ballot votes over the years. 

However, some provinces have indicated an 'abnormal' trend as far as the voters' number is concerned - watch the video to spot the irregular patterns - it is concerning! 

There is a need for the PNG Electoral Commission to keep a good record of past elections.
