To eliminate any potential bias, no manager could vote for himself. In the event of a tie, the following tie-breakers were used: the manager appearing on the most ballots will break a tie. If a tie remains, the manager receiving the highest seed vote would break a tie. If a tie still remains, the vote will be deemed a tie. Only managers appearing on multiple ballots shown.
