> 	As I understand the rankings in your posting, you have three voters who voted among six "candidates".

	I simplified it so that is not strictly true, but, in a nut-shell, these voters use bad voting systems and them complain about the bad nonsensical results they get.  I suggest better voting systems, but these ponies are as stubborn as mules.

> 	No candidate is ranked in more than one ranking.

	Not strictly true, but everypony can see that the results are bad and nonsensical.

> 	The election can only be a 3-way tie among the three candidates that are top-ranked on the three ballots.

	Yes, ties and bad nonsensical results.

	Basically, yes.  Somewhere in here is a lesson about advocacy of electoral reform.  Unfortunately, I cannot find it.  It is not the 1 about outsiders trying to tell strangers how to live their lives (I am a member of this group).  I do not know where my mistake is.  If we could figure out this, we could be better advocates of electoral reform.  To quote Ditzy Doo:
