My mistake. I missed the preference voting reference in your original post. I just caught the at-large part of it.

You are right about the preferential voting giving weight to underrepresented groups where you either weight the votes or where you only vote for one but the top 5 actually get in.

I was thinking more on the terms of the usual at-large election where there are 5 seats open so you get to vote for 5.
