Very nice find.

I had no idea they were going to release the individual ballots.

Fortunately, it is only a matter of time before there is a case of a 
close race where the method used (and perhaps even IRV tiebreak used) 
would make a difference in who wins.

I don't suppose you have the ballots in the form of 1:a>b>c ?

It would be easy enough for me to write the code to get them into 
that form, but I figure you've probably either done it or written the 
hardest part already which would be to parse the text.
