By my count the actual results are:

	Bruce, John, Benj, Craig, Scott, David G. tied with Jimmy, David H.

	(Bruce beats John 74:47, John beats Benj 61:51, Benj beats Craig 61:50,
	Craig beats Scott 65:52, Scott beats David G. and Jimmy 70:38/73:39,
	David G. and Jimmy (tied on 54:54) beat David H. 62:45/56:52)

By my count, the results had the marked options been interpreted as being
preferred to unmarked options, the results would've been:

	Bruce, John, Benj tied with Craig, Scott, Jimmy, David G., David H.

	(84:46, 72:54/77:53, 66:56/74:54, 80:41, 60:57, 66:52)

21 people didn't include Benj in their ballot, 10 people didn't include

For entertainment's sake, a probably buggy implementation of Single
Transferable Vote for three seats also seems to give Bruce, John and
Benj as the winners, with Craig just missing out.
