I forgot to mention that the method is efficiently summable over precincts:
Make a pairwise matrix where the off diagonal elements give the information for pairwise defeats, and the diagonal elements keep track of the first place totals.
In particular, if a certain ballot ranks the first three candidates equal top, then that ballot adds the fraction 1/3 to each of the first three diagonal elements of the summary matrix.
