You'll find descriptions and assessments of the proportional electoral systems below, followed by semi-proportional. Winner-take-all systems are not included here, as the navigation guide generally parsed their differences and effects (though fusion voting is included here because it's less familiar for many, but important to know about). Each description includes a review of the voting and representational effects of the system, and case histories from its actual use. You'll also find a primer on differentiating between "proportional" and "parliamentary."
