 The foundation uses a modern, if confusing, vote counting scheme that is designed to help
assure that small coherent constituencies can get a seat on the board. The vote counting design
helps to enable members to reveal their actual desires while at the same time getting engaging
in more strategic benefits of voting so that your vote will count.
 
-Let's start with a point about strategic voting.  Strategic voting is the name for votes
that don't reveal your actual preference but instead make a calculated choice to get the maximum
benefit out of your vote.   Image there are three candidates A, B, and C.  You hate C; you
love A; you think B's ok.  In the absence of strategic voting you'd vote for A.  But say you
know that polling data shows that B and C are neck and neck in the race and A seems sure to
loose.  Strategic voters then vote for B.

 Our vote counting technique helps solve that problem.  You vote for A, B, C in that order.
  Should it then becomes clear he won't win your vote will be reallocated; presumably to B.
 (Actually given that you hate C you probably shouldn't vote for him at all.)
