Cumulative Voting is a Voting system in which voters are allocated a certain number of points which they can allocate between the candidates, though a point cannot (usually) be split between candidates. In a single position election the candidate with the most points is deemed elected. The system is sometimes described as semi-proportional in multi-position elections because a member of a minority group can award all his/her points to a single candidate, while others may choose to spread their points across a number of candidates.
