There is a difference between systems where people are electing parties, and systems where people are electing candidates. Both are multi winner systems, but are of different kind. This page seem to only cover the party type of systems. But in the index on the side it seem to also cover Satisfaction Approval Voting. But Satisfaction Approval Voting is a multi winner system to elect candidates. (talk) 09:14, 4 October 2015 (UTC)

Rename Article: Mixed Electoral System[edit]

Semi-proportional representation is more commonly referred to as 'Mixed Electoral Systems'. [1][2][3][4]:22[5][6] [7] [8] [9] The article would be more accurate using the more common language.
