How will the votes be counted?

In the first round of vote counting, the first choice indicated on each ballot will be counted as a vote for that contestant. In the event of no contestant receiving 50% plus 1 of the votes cast during the first round of counting, then the contestant who receives the fewest votes is eliminated. Ballots cast for the eliminated contestant will then be re-counted for their next highest preference. Voting rounds will continue in this manner until one contestant receives votes from 50% plus 1 of the eligible ballots cast. The most preferred eligible contestant indicated on the ballot will be determined to be the vote for that ballot. In the event a ballot for an eliminated candidate does not indicate a next preference or all contestants who receive an indication of preference on a ballot are eliminated, that ballot will not be counted in subsequent voting rounds. Thus, the total ballots cast each round may reduce in number.
