You can submit a ballot which votes a candidate higher than the candidate
would have been ranked if you hadn't voted, without changing the relative
order or rating of any other candidates from how you would have ranked
them for if you hadn't voted.
Likewise, you can submit a ballot which votes a candidate lower than
the candidate would have been ranked if you hadn't voted at all, without
changing the relative order or rating of any of the other candidates...
P.S. I'm going to be busy for a while -- hopefully other people will
answer any other questions you have.
