NOTE: Most of the few ballots counted as "spoiled" were actually blank

ballots, which delegates were instructed to place in the ballot box even if

they didn't want to cast a vote in a particular race. The rest of the

spoiled ballots were delegates placing the stickers for one race on the

ballot for another race (e.g., placing the stickers for vice-chairman

candidates on the ballot for chairman). The spoilage rate was remarkably

low. And the victory margins were wide enough that the spoiled ballots, if correctly cast, would not have affected the outcome.
