Please update websites for 6 years (2 terms worth) of election results to the newer "total ballots cast" You can not infer the total ballots, total votes can easily be calculated by summing the votes for each candidate.

Thank you for your suggestion numbered 2014.28 upon receipt which asks for consistent reporting in the election participation results. It is your desire to see total ballots cast.

As you indicated in an email to you did go back and review older announcements, finding the number of total ballots casts at the bottom under Voter Statistics.

Since your request is already being met we are closing this suggestion.
