Example of variegation: distributing votes to different parties

Under cross-voting ( fr. Panacher "make colored mix") is understood at a choice with people-more than one vote system, the distribution of several available voices by the voters on individual candidates of different electoral lists .

The absolute number of votes cast for individual candidates only influences the distribution of seats within their list (party); the number of seats for a list is determined by the total number of votes for all of their applicants (exception: " Inappropriateness of suburbs " in the municipal elections in Baden- Württemberg ).

The possibility of variegation exists in Switzerland in the parliamentary elections of the various levels.

In Germany , it is provided for in local elections in the federal states of Baden-Württemberg , Bavaria , Brandenburg , Hesse , Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania , Lower Saxony , Rhineland-Palatinate , Saxony , Saxony-Anhalt , Schleswig-Holstein and Thuringia . In the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen and Hamburg , local and regional elections can be used.

Giving more than one vote to a candidate is called accumulating or heaping.
