7. Sir! You are mistaken. Your name calling is falsehood.
You have taken this as wrong, and instead your assertion is wrong. Your use of football rules, South Park plot, and ASSpen is balderdash.

There were 2544 votes cast. Half plus one equals 1273. When one candidate collects 1273, that candidate would be the first to have over half the vote. Thus the rest of the counting can have no possible further effect on the winner's status of elected. For each office on the same number of ballots, all they needed to do was to count to just over 50% of the vote, here 1273 votes. That's why all three races stopped at 1273.

On each of these tallies you can go to the Start and read in excerpt:
...
2,544 valid ballots.
Electing 1 candidate.
Winning threshold is 1273 votes.
There were no invalid ballots.
(2,544 total ballots processed.)
