No, you can't really “split votes”, or “steal votes” in PR.

context: I'm from Ireland, which uses PR-STV voting system, and the uses a very similar system (but with fractional votes) for electing to the Board.
For me, transfers & preferences are obvious, and second nature, but for others it's a new & confusing system.
