Assuming 6 seats, optimal strategy is probably to approve either the
6th or 7th most popular candidate and all candidates you prefer to
that candidate.  If you run out of votes, the you should approve
candidates who are most likely to tie for the 6th seat first before
other candidates.

In any case, you really should cast all 6 votes.
