    36% voted for Cameron and he's in, a turnout of 65% of the electorate. 36/65=55.4%


    What was the result of the ballot on the first offer?
    From the EIS website:
    Turnout in this ballot was 57%

    The vote to reject the first offer was 97.6% (55.4% of eligible voters)

    can get it wrong!!!!!!!

    Cameron - 36% of 65% = 23.4% of possible votes.
    EIS - 97% of 57% = 55.6% of possible votes.
