Note that, if you add the scores of Canon 5Ds (718 pts) and 5Ds R (899 pts), you obtain a score of 1,617 points, higher than that of K-3 II (1,397 pts).
BUT, voters could select up to 5 cameras and probably picked both of them. Adding is not possible there, it's just wrong.

Thanks to kwb for the great translation.

Going by brand on the score...

Canon total score: 2015 (average 503.5)
EOS 5Ds, 718 points, 24.0%
EOS 5Ds R, 899 points, 30.1%
EOS 8000D, 296 points, 9.9%
EOS Kiss X8i, 102 points, 3.4%

Nikon total score: 1470 (average 490)
D5500, 429 points, 14.4%
D810A, 463 points, 15.5%
D7200, 578 points, 19.4%

Leica S (Typ007), 244 points, 8.2%

Pentax total score: 1924 (average score 962)
PENTAX K-S2, 545 points, 18.2%
PENTAX K-3 II, 1397 points, 46.8%

Canon need score from 4 cameras to be able to beat Pentax total score from 2 cameras.
Pentax average score is close to twice as much as Canon and Nikon got.

Maybe Pentax service in Japan is really good. I bought my k-3II from a seller in Japan. To avoid the GPS issue I requested for a unit with a serial number above the rcommenation of Pentax. She replied that Pentax did a pull out of the affected units from their distributors' shelves. While a lot were complaining that they've received affected units despite the notice, Japan did an immediate pull out. If people get trouble free units with great features and performance the feedback would be highly positive.

still The K-3 II is getting a lot of votes. Hopefully reflected in sales in Japan (and this was not just a campaign from Japanese Pentaxians skewing the poll )
Not just Japanese Pentaxians indeed: I did vote
