voting power unbalance (or voting right unbalance)


Explanation:
I guess this means that certain shares, despite having the same face value, have more influence over the corporation than others.

I think that it is the "result" that is distorted, not the right.

Another possibility would be "voting power variation"

unbalanced voting privileges


Explanation:
Just another version.
Unbalanced is a little less strong than "distorted".
