There are some confusions here about ties, majority, casting votes, and
In any vote that needs any form of majority, a tie means that no option
has won (because, obviously, none has a majority); so the easiest option
is to not stop, but eliminate the least liked option as usual. In this
case, that means the tied options, so you effectively end up with zero
votes, and thus, by necessity, the default option.
This also means casting votes are actually not useful, unless we have a
vote that does not require a majority - I don't remember any, though.
(That would probably be a mass vote for committee members, such that N > 1
people are to be chosen.)

Looks reasonable at first glance.
