I do mean proportional representation but perhaps it has different
connotations than I think it does because of the way it is used here in
Since each candidate in the foundation election is an independent and
can win at most one seat, I don't really think proportional
representation applies here.
I still think that preferential voting is worth investigating though.
It seems like a fairer system which handles people voting for popular
candidates more fairly.
