What is the difference between Plurality and Proportional electoral systems? What is an example of these systems in practice?
First-Past-The-Post is the most common form of Plurality elections. The United States uses this system to elect representatives, specifically their president. The candidate that receives a plurality of votes in each district wins the election. Proportional systems are more complex than Plurality systems. Votes are cast for party lists made by the party and receive seats equal to their share of the vote. Israel is an example of this system.
