*One electorate seat is unallocated because of the tied preliminary count in the Christchurch Central electorate. As a result, the total number of list seats is increased by one. The total number of seats allocated to each party is unaffected.

The preliminary results are based on the 2,014,334 votes counted on election night.

Special declaration votes still to be counted are estimated at 240,247 (10.7% of total votes). This includes an estimated 19,527 overseas votes.

The total estimated votes (those counted on election night plus estimated special votes to be counted) is 2,254,581.

Voter turnout for the 2011 General Election is estimated to be 73.83% of those enrolled as at 5pm Friday 25 November.  This compares with a final 79.46% turnout of those enrolled in 2008.
