6. ALL 3. Mayor and City Council Seats 1 and 2 - the entire IRV election
Edited on Sun May-24-09 03:57 PM by WillYourVoteBCounted
The election was decided by Footbal rules. This is an election from a South Park Plot
and fittingly, entitled ASSPEN.

Aspen's 3 IRV contests, each was won with 1,273 votes.
How likely is it that the winner of Mayoral, Council Seat 1, and Council Seat 2 would each get 1,273 votes, with 2 of these going to 4th round, and one going just to 3rd round?
It only happened with Instant Runoff Voodoo, and election officials are the witch doctors to interpret the "magic" to the natives.

How was this election decided?

For Mayor -
