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.)
