After considering many single contest possibilities I settled on this one
because it seemed like the simplest monotonic one: If I improve the winner
W's position on the three slot ballot, then she still wins if the two
finalists, W and L, remain the same. W will still be a finalist, but what
about L? Since W is the only candidate with a score change, if L changes
to L', the L' = W, i.e.
now W is the only finalist, and therefore she still wins.
I'll have to continue in another message, since my time is gone.
