Currently, I believe is causing an infinite recursion, which prevents this election from tallying.

SecurePoll and OpenSTV agree on elected candidates.

This is election was designed to test SecurePoll's precision. In round 5, candidates 7 and 8 are both eliminated, in spite of the fact that candidate 7 "earns" 3.396523814311746E-16 votes that round. Candidate 7 is eliminated when perhaps they should remain hopeful. This is due to PHP's limited precision. This is very similar to 20_7_5000_292763510.
