A better type of electoral reform than the one that is being demanded?

Why not give every voter the option to break their vote into ten parts so that they can spread them around a bit?

This would surely allow people to respond to candidates more accurately?

A concise and completely opaque post. How can one answer these questions when you give absolutely no clue as to what the hell you're talking about?

I saw an article about an election to a New York school board which did this. There were 6 posts up for election. Each voter had 6 votes, and could distribute them as they saw fit: all six to one candidate, one to six different candidates, or something in between.

Not sure about it, myself, and the reasoning behind it was that even though the area had a lot of hispanic voters, the board had never had a hispanic member until the rules changed.
