Public data from virtually all of those elections are here:

There's a handful not available at that link but nearly all of those
winners had a majority of first choices. Admittedly, I think there's still
a few in the intersection of (no public data) and (no majority of first
choices). The few without public data I think are largely (or all?)
hand-counted. When they're optically-scanned, it's been common practice for
the jurisdiction to post the cast vote records online.
