Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

If the maximum number of points assigned to the top candidate by a voter is 5 out of 5 using the borda count method, then it is possible that if all voters prefer the same candidate as the winner, then the maximum number of points that a top candidate can receive is 5 points * 30 voters = 150 points for all voters.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.
