The object of the ao um ulative voting
Bstem a.ivocnted oy Hie Populists is to
make it porsib'e P-r every party, minority

Under it two fl'ths of ihe tola' vote of a
county could elect tw . out of five com-nii-si
ine'S. An exchange thus illustrates
"If in a county polling a total ot 2 500
vot s, t'e Rep -Poplicnns polled 1,500 and
ih Uemocr-iis 1 00't votes, the former
wi u d elect three Commissioners and the
