In Minneapolis, if you fail to select a candidate, who is not one of the final two finishers your ballot is deemed “Exhausted,” and you have been functionally disenfranchised. We thought this was an egregious issue on its own, but not we understand, those votes are not even included in the overall count and are not part of the denominator for determining 50%+1 on subsequent ballots.
This is the difference between a “Static” result, where all of the votes in the first round set the bar versus a “Dynamic” result. Talk about giving a false outcome.
This means if you again only voted for a single candidate, and they don’t continue either through here rounds in Minneapolis or six in Bloomington, you are SOL and to add insult to injury you might as well have not voted at all, because the results is nearly the same.
