*For executive positions, if no candidate receives a majority of votes after first-rank choices are calculated, the first-rank votes for the candidates with the least number of votes are redistributed to the voter’s top remaining choice. The process continues until a winner emerges.

For senate positions, after a candidate reaches a certain quota, the tabulation program will not allocate any more votes to that candidate. The remaining votes for such candidates will be redistributed through a single transferable voting system until all 20 seats are filled.
