If it doesn't take much time, how about doing these 3-candidate
random simulations:
1. Every voter ranks all 3 candidates, with no equal rankings.
(There are 6 possible orderings.)
2. Every voter ranks all 3 candidates. Some voters rank two
candidates as equal second choices (e.g., A > B=C) and the rest of
the voters have no equal rankings. (There are 9 possible orderings.)
3. Every voter ranks all 3 candidates. Some rank two candidates as
equal first choices (e.g., A=B > C) and the rest have no equal
rankings. (There are 9 possible orderings.)
4. Every voter ranks all 3 candidates. Some rank two candidates as
equal first choices, some rank two as equal second choices, and the
rest have no equal rankings. (There are 12 possible orderings.)
