I'm not sure of the best way to implement Borda with ballots that don't
rank all the candidates. Suppose that 4 candidates are running. With a
A B C D
A gets 4 points, B gets 3 points and so on. But what about a ballot like
A and B should be treated as above, but what about C and D? I see two options:
(1) C and D each get nothing.
(2) C and D each get 1.5 points (average of leftover points).
Any thoughts as to which is better?
