U.S. Senate runoffs    UK / USA

 

State election officials

declare a runoff election

when no candidat

 in a given contest earns enough votes

to clear the state-mandated

percentage share of the vote

to be victorious.

 

In most cases,

the two candidates

who earned the largest share of votes

advance to a head-to-head runoff

so that one is guaranteed to earn

at least 50 per cent plus one vote.

 

Because the US Constitution leaves it

up to individual states

how to run their elections,

they have varying thresholds

to declare an outright winner.
