Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I would have to know how one who has the most votes not necessarily wins, and what makes a win if not by majority of votes I believe

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yeah, it is. It takes simple math, but adds politics to the mix. So I didn't, but I hope you know your American voting system.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so it's simply a case of the candidate A gets 8 votes, candidate B gets 6 votes and candicate C gets 5 votes... then candidate C is eliminated and the votes for candidate C are distributed between A and B after looking at the 2nd preferences... so if 5 people voted 1 for candidate C if 4 or more of those 5 people voted for candidate B, then B wins the election if 4 voted B as 2nd preference the count is A = 9 and B = 10 if 4 voted B as 2nd preference the count is A = 8 and B = 11 hope it makes sense

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But thats the twist is because 19 is the number of total voters, majority has to be 10 or more for one of the candidates :/ @campbell_st

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no the question says a candidate has a majority of 1st preference votes.... not a majority of all votes.. so if candidate A gets 8 values and B 6 votes, then A has the majority of 1st preference votes.
