11. I'm not buying your Kool-aid innuendo, nor your distractions.
Date of certification .. not relevant.

Reason for not certifying could be relevant but you don't ask about that, just if its done yet.

Order of count .. not relevant.

When over 50% have determined a candidate their first choice, then the majority is going to rule and the remaining votes will not be able to change that result.

Now, if you want to further complicate IRV, one could allow for the second and third choices to be given to more than one candidate. Such counting could then lead to a candidate further down receiving more votes. But, here, all these votes are prioritized votes, prioritized by the voter. And, having more than 50% of the prioritized vote.. elects.

Same number of votes .. not a problem. Discussed a couple posts ahead of this one.
