This is an "instant runoff" poll, allowing voters to
conveniently find a strongly supported winner from among many candidates,
with minimal worries about "wasting" votes on weak candidates or
"splitting" votes between similar candidates.
how it works:
Each ballot is counted toward its highest-ranked remaining candidate.
Does a candidate have a majority of counted votes?
No: The last-place candidate is eliminated; go to step 1.
Yes: The majority winner wins the election.
Your lower choices won't hurt the chances of your higher choices.
Please don't give two or more candidates the same rank.
Only the order of your ranked candidates matters, and not the actual numbers.
If you don't rank a candidate, it means you'd rather not have your vote
count than have it count toward that candidate.
