Results:

6 ballots; the results.

A unanimous winner and a tie for second.

The first tiebreaker, re-doing the tabulations as if the winner didn’t exist, didn’t break it. In fact, the fourth place finisher won the tie-breaker.

The second tie-breaker, head to head competition, produced the winner, winning 4-2.
