Counting[edit | edit source]

The election moderators were Llorens, Hecknamistan, and Morvan.

For the Secretary/Prime Minister contest, all candidates, including Seek other ticket, are compared head-to-head and the data is compiled into a table. The ticket that has the most wins is declared elected. In the unlikely event that no one ticket has the most wins, a series of tiebreakers is held to elect a winner. If there is only one ticket, they face a confidence vote instead.

For the Senators contest, all candidates, including Seek other candidate, are compared head-to-head and the data is compiled into a table. All the candidates are then ranked primarily according to most wins, however, a series of tiebreakers may be held if necessary. From this ranking, the top number of candidates equal to the number of available Senator positions is elected.
