Abstract

As part of the 2017 Audit of UK Democracy, Patrick Dunleavy and DA staff examine the two proportional (PR) electoral systems now used in the UK, albeit for much smaller elections. How have they fared in converting votes into seats and fostering political legitimacy? Do they show that PR can work well under British political conditions?
