Can't find where on Facebook I set a criterion for the ratio between exhausted votes and the last live candidates which would indicate a fatal problem, but the results in NSW clearly exceed any reasonable threshold. At the last meaningful step of the count, number 1054, the 13th live candidate (Hall) was eliminated with the counts at:
Quota: 345,554
Williams: 345,279
Burston: 335,786
Leyonhhjelm: 274,850
Hall: 167,480
Exhausted: 326,849
Disingenuously, the AEC then distributed Hall's preferences, which appeared to get the 10th and 11th over quota while many more notionally exhausted leaving the anarchist well below quota but still elected.
