Michelle Stilwell (Liberal) has enough votes to guarantee victory (21.1%) and is declared a winner.
In the end, 81.7% of all cast ballots counted toward a winner. This compares to 45.1% 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 4" 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.

Also, view the Ballot Depth info to see how much lower rankings contributed to the tally.
