La sola applicazione significativa di tutte queste opzioni si ha, comunque, in Svizzera, dove il governo è predisposto quanto a durata e composizione; il che rende minima l'incidenza del sistema a lista libera. Infine, il voto limitato dà a ciascun elettore più di un voto, ma meno voti rispetto al numero di persone da eleggere: per esempio, in un collegio trinominale gli elettori hanno due voti. Discuteremo questo sistema nel prossimo capitolo. Il problema dei sistemi maggioritari è che sono troppo manipolativi.

Il termine tedesco per questo dispositivo è Sperrklausel, clausola di sbarramento; e la soglia tedesca è stata fissata, sin dall'inizio, al livello del 5 per cento11. Il dispositivo è stato adottato da molti paesi, ma le soglie variano.
