Note: If this doesn't make sense, try reading the How it works page, or ask a question.

In the first round, the first choices on each ballot are tallied.
No candidate has the number of votes needed to guarantee victory (50%), so the last-place candidate (John NEILSON) is eliminated. Ballots for that candidate are counted toward their next highest ranking.

Go to the next round.
