What data is expected?

This data category requires results by constituency / district for all major national electoral contests. Election data informs about voting outcomes and voting process. What are electoral majorities and minorities? How many votes are registered, invalid, or spoilt? To enable highest transparency, the Index assesses polling station data. Data for electoral zones does not suffice. The Index consulted the National Democratic Institute (NDI) to develop this data category. For more information, see the NDI’s Open Elections Data Initiative. We recommend that you consult our methodology section for more information.

Rejected submission because not all required data is available. As submitter noted, results available (http://www.eoj.com.jm/content-183-179.htm / http://www.eoj.com.jm/content-183-181.htm) include registered votes, major results and invalid votes, no information for spoiled ballots. All data available with the submitted characteristics and is downloadable, although in PDF files. HTML format is not available for all datasets, being more common on Parliamentary elections than in Parish Council Elections. The information available via HTML only accounts for a Summary of the election results (http://www.eoj.com.jm/content-70-290.htm) and it does not include all the required data characteristics. The document detailed the number of Rejected Ballots however they did not detail if they case was a spoiled ballot. Finding the information has a straightforward process.
