With a pairwise-count method, when a voter chooses the power truncation 
option, that means that s/he wants, for any candidate s/he doesn't rank, 
that his/her ballot be counted as voting every one of the other candidates 
against that one.

So every candidate s/he doesn't rank is treated as if it were last-ranked on 
his-her ballot, with all the others ranked over that candidate.
