Electoral systemEdit

Electoral district no. 8 currently elects seven of the 101 members of the Riigikogu using the open party-list proportional representation electoral system.[3][4] The allocation of seats is carried out in three stages. In the first stage, any individual candidate, regardless of whether they are a party or independent candidate, who receives more votes than the district's simple quota (Hare quota: valid votes in district/number of seats allocated to district) is elected via a personal mandate.[5] In the second stage, district mandates are allocated to parties by dividing their district votes by the district's simple quota.[5] Only parties that reach the 5% national threshold compete for district mandates and any personal mandates won by the party are subtracted from the party's district mandates.[5] Prior to 2003 if a party's surplus/remainder votes was equal to or greater than 75% of the district's simple quota it received one additional district mandate.[5] Any unallocated district seats are added to a national pool of compensatory seats.[5] In the final stage, compensatory mandates are calculated based on the national vote and using a modified D'Hondt method.[5] Only parties that reach the 5% national threshold compete for compensatory seats and any personal and district mandates won by the party are subtracted from the party's compensatory mandates.[5] Though calculated nationally, compensatory mandates are allocated at the district level.
