Cumulative voting hasn’t always proven popular. Illinois scrapped a cumulative voting
system in the early 1980s because “outcomes were not viewed as being representative
of the (majority of the) people,” said Donald Saari, who teaches economics and math
at UC Irvine. Candidates in Illinois urged residents not to “waste” their votes by
splitting them up, and groups sometimes banded together to trade votes or otherwise
vote strategically, Saari said.
