46. BBC article here might be useful:

It makes some key points that I think need to be considered, including the fact that spoilage goes up dramatically when there is more than one race (even though we vote on different ballots for different races).

Here's another one:

I can't yet find any reference to the number of tellers, but thirty sounds about right from watching counts on TV (and yes, there are TV cameras at every count, because every "declaration" is televised).

If I find any more info, I'll post it here.
