Go to http://en.wikipedia.org/ and search for "Pascal's Triangle".

The second value (from left) in a row says how many judges are undecided. So row 5 is the one to use. Entries are number who vote in your favor starting with 0 and ending with 4. Add the entries corresponding to 2, 3, and 4 and divide by the sum of the row (which is always a power of 2).

Of course in the real world you aren't "sure" of a judge's vote until s/he makes it. As always there are uncertainties to be considered/estimated/quoted.
