SecurePoll option to not allow voters to have ties in their order of preferences
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

This seems to be a very easy task but enhances the SecurePoll capabilities a lot. By adding this small option, we can implement literally every ranked voting system, such as single transferable vote (STV), and tally the votes by hand using anonymous dump of votes!

Later we can add various counting methods such as Borda, IRV, Meek, and many others available in other voting software.
