Party: This reflects the registered party of the candidate listed at the time of the race, not a party’s endorsement.

Ballots: Only the number of ballots counted in a race where a vote was recorded Includes write-ins; excludes under votes.

Under Votes: The number of ballots that were received without a vote for this race (for example, where a person voted for president, but not mayor, that would be an under vote on the mayoral race).

Share: Percentage of votes for head-to-head candidates (John vs Bob vs write-ins).

Total share: Includes under votes to reflect voter interest in a race. News articles typically report the basic, head-to-head share figure.

Campaign finance figures are taken from Orestar. All figures are from the Account Summary tab for the year of the election listed.
