Electoral District - Non-geographic Democratic Systems

Non-geographic Democratic Systems

Not all democratic political systems use separate districts to conduct elections; Israel, for instance, conducts parliamentary elections as a single, nationwide entity, while the 20 electoral districts of Netherlands have a role in the actual election, but no role whatsoever in the division of the seats. Ukraine will elect half of the Verkhovna Rada (the Ukrainian parliament) in this way in the October 2012 elections.
