or too many votes, or no further calculations were requested.) 

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.
