representation
Ranking 

Firstmost representative choice is: 
Clark Beckham 
Secondmost representative choice
is a tie among these choices: 
Michael Simeon
Nick Fradiani

Additional levels of representation
cannot be determined until the above tie
has been resolved, which can be done
by introducing a tiebreaking vote. 

VoteFair
representation
ranking results should be used when more than one choice is to be selected.
Why? When there are 100 voters, 51 of them can choose the first winner,
so the other 49 voters deserve extra influence in choosing the second winner
(instead of letting the 51 voters also choose the second winner).
When should representation results be used?
When a second candidate is elected to a second equivalent seat in a state legislature,
or when an organization pursues a simultaneous second activity in addition to the most popular activity.
