The only reasonable method of voting using this ranking data is one of the 
Condorcet methods.  How you break ties doesnt matter much to me. 
Wikimedia, Debian, Gentoo, and Software in the Public Intrest all use 
Schulze method for what that is worth.

However, I'm more concerned about who gets to vote and how many times do 
they get to vote.
