    You obviously take more trouble than most Local Authorities with your results and maybe it’s my inability to search the site but :-
    (1) I cannot find the electorates of each Ward
    (2) There’s no mention of the number of rejected ballot papers
    (3) Some authorities(not many) list the number of Postal Votes issued and the number returned
    (4) Some authorities(not many) do a breakdown by polling districts.
    It would be very interesting to election geeks like me if you could do this.

      We’ve made the information available here: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B3OX4ags5zyuVzFwcktrVnMyeUE

      (2) There’s no mention of the number of rejected ballot papers
      We don’t currently provide this but will take comment on board.

      (3) Some authorities(not many) list the number of Postal Votes issued and the number returned
      See: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B3OX4ags5zyuMlRwZG4wZ1J3bFU

      This is 2011 AND 2012 and offers a comparison between the council election and AV referendum for 2011 and between the council election and mayoral referendum for 2012.

      Some wards had more than one ballot box with postal votes, which explains why there are multiple entries for some wards.

      (4) Some authorities(not many) do a breakdown by polling districts.
      It would be very interesting to election geeks like me if you could do this.

      We did this once many years ago as a research project into voting patterns, but this pre-dates the newsroom. Again we welcome your feedback and will take it on board.
