Not if classes are structured so as to elect distinct seats, such as in
ICANN, in which the general membership class gets to elect 9 directors,
and each SO (a class) gets to elect 3 separate directors.

And not if all the classes vote for the same set of seats -- the
allocation of votes to each class will influence the outcome.
