Alternatively (or additionally), we could switch to Condorcet, which is
an election method that specifically does not fill the proportionality
criteria. 30% of voters won't give you anything, especially if the other
70% don't like you that much.

It would favor consensus candidates, which in this case (individual
member election) could be a good idea.

AFAIK there is a lawyer question about accepted election methods for
corporate boards under Delaware law, but I think that's an option that
we should definitely explore.
