@evanstucker In Sweden the votes determine the number of seats a party gets in parliament (Sweden's Riksdag). So they don't determine a "winner" per se. The parties in parliament (Sweden currently has 8 parties in parliament) then amongst themselves determine (through negotiation and voting in the chamber) what party or constellation of parties constitute the government.
@evanstucker The nomenclature for this is Party-list proportional representation, which I think about 85 countries make use of.
That's fantastic! Thanks for the information. I hope I get to see the USA use proportional representation one day...
