This is an alternative Borda method. Voters are required
to assign preference scores to every candidate and one
score value cannot be shared by two or more candidates.
For a voter, his 1st choice gets 1, his 2nd choice gets
1/2, his 3rd choice gets 1/3... The candidate who gets
the most points wins. For the function
dowdall_method, ranks, rather than true
values, are used. So 1, 3, 5 are ranked as 1, 2, 3, and the
scores are 1/1, 1/2, 1/3.
