Subject: [CODE4LIB] A question about voting points

So, I just voted for the Code4Lib 2014 location. There are two possible venues, and I was given three points to apportion however I wish.

While having multiple votes, to spread around at will, makes a lot of sense, shouldn't the number of votes each elector is granted be limited to max(3, count(options)-1)? That is, when voting for a binary, I get one vote, when voting on a choice of three items, I get two votes, and for anything more than three choices, I get three votes?

I mean, realistically, one could give one vote to Austin and two votes to Raleigh, but why bother?
