well, to be pedantic, a "donkey vote" is when you just number the
candidates 1,2,3,4,5,6 from top to bottom.  still a valid vote, but
generally associated with someone who hasn't bothered to consider the
candidates, just written the numbers to get the whole process over with.
OF course, it is possible that the "donkey vote" does reflect your
actual preferences.
