The dotted line represents the number of votes that guarantees victory (19.4%).

No new candidate has the number of votes needed to guarantee victory, so the last-place candidate (Mark Stad (Libertarian)) is eliminated. Ballots for that candidate are counted toward their next highest ranking.

The dotted line represents the number of votes that guarantees victory (19.4%).

At this point, the number of remaining candidates equals the number of remaining seats, so the remaining candidates are declared elected.
In the end, 92.3% of all cast ballots counted toward a winner. This compares to 55.6% if only the first-round votes were used. You should be able to see that the winners have a more equal mandate in the final round than in the first round.

Note that even the "highest first-round votes" method is more democratic than most methods used in US public elections: the "vote for 5" method, which allows the largest block of voters to dominate, and the district method, where choices are restricted to the one or two viable candidates within geographical boundaries drawn by the politicians in office.

The Ballot Depth section shows how much lower rankings contributed to the tally.
