Precisely. If you're counting ballots in order to determine who's winning, wouldn't you want the ordering to change to reflect the changes after each round? I'm not sure what the benefit is of keeping it in the same random order.

Mark V Anderson definitely got some "confusion" votes meant for Mark Andrew, right?

It will be interesting to see how many of his votes go to Mark Andrew, and hilarious if it was none or very few, supporting my theory.

Presumably, yes, because Andrew got very few second place votes from Anderson.

It also appears, based on which precincts that Andrew won and the fact that Brian Rice was a driving force behind both their campaigns, that a great deal of Warsame's voters were told to vote for Andrew. It's quite possible that if you're Somali and not that familiar with American names, Mark Anderson could be an easy mistake when you're looking through 35 names.

Well, if it adds any data to the theory, I was slightly confused for 1/100th of second.

And of course the biggest getter of Cohen's votes went to Winton.

2 of the top 8 are out so far, this is the home stretch.

And with 38870 votes, 48.95% of the total, Betsy Hodges is our new mayor!

Similar to the Java program posted earlier (though I forget if it was in this thread), I made a Python script last week to tabulate votes. When I ran it on my home desktop, it went through a set of 80,000 votes in about 1 second. The output is not pretty, though -- I haven't had an opportunity to go back through and clean it up to present results in a nice way. Input is just supposed to be a CSV file with 1,2,3 choices on each line.

This is a base64-encoded bzip2 file of the script:
