5/29/2014 If death gets more votes, each opponent chooses and sacrifices a creature they control. None of these creatures are targeted. An opponent could sacrifice a creature with protection from black, for example.
5/29/2014 Because the votes are cast in turn order, each player will know the votes of players who voted beforehand.
5/29/2014 You must vote for one of the available options. You can’t abstain.
5/29/2014 No player votes until the spell or ability resolves. Any responses to that spell or ability must be made without knowing the outcome of the vote.
5/29/2014 Players can’t do anything after they finishing voting but before the spell or ability that included the vote finishes resolving.
5/29/2014 The phrase “the vote is tied” refers only to when there is more than one choice that received the most votes. For example, if a 5-player vote from among three different choices ends 3 votes to 1 vote to 1 vote, the vote isn’t tied.
