The dotted line represents the number of votes that guarantees victory (50% of counted votes).

A tie was resolved by choosing a candidate at random.
No candidate has the number of votes needed to guarantee victory, so the last-place candidate (Jonathan S. Fulford) is eliminated. Ballots for that candidate are counted toward their next highest ranking.
