Indeed, in the past I voted for the candidates I thought would most help the function of the group (TAG or AB), and would most help balance or fill in needs.

Which is why, for me, our inability to allow equal-choice voting is the most worrying. I don’t mind STV, and I think the way that it tends to prefer least-bad outcomes and elect generally acceptable candidates may help. But without equal-choice, I am really only able to affect the election of one or two candidates, and when there are four seats, that feels strange.
