How the results are calculated

A simple vote counting algorithm in which ballots are counted and the winner is the candidate or candidates who are the most-approved. When running a multi-seat election (3 directors are elected from 7 candidates) the candidate with the highest approval will win the first seat, the second-highest percentage approval wins the second seat, and so on, until all seats are filled.
