No. Voters can rank up to 3 candidates. If you do not want to rank some candidates, leave columns blank.
No. Ranking other candidates does not affect your first choice. Only your first choice is counted in Round 1. Your second, third, and fourth choices will be considered only if your first-choice candidate does not win or has more votes than necessary to win.
If no candidate receives more than 50% of first-choice votes, the last-place candidate is eliminated. If your first choice is eliminated, your next choice will be counted, and so on.
No. Your vote can count only once for your first choice. If you rank the same candidate first, second, and third, it is the same as leaving the second, third, and fourth choices blank.
No. If you give multiple candidates the same ranking, this is called an “overvote”. Your vote in that rank and later ranks cannot be counted.
