The table below lists in order what percentage of people who gave the Greens their party vote, gave their electorate vote to the Labour candidate.
This sort of split voting is somewhat different to Labour and Green voters voting for a National candidate or vice-versa. This is more left-wing voters splitting their vote between two parties of the left. It is more a measure of how tactical Green voters were.
|% of Gre PV voting Lab EV||Lab|
|West Coast Tasman||64.2%|
|Bay of Plenty||44.0%|
|East Coast Bays||28.0%|
