Today I Learned: "China's National People's Congress is a multilevel hierarchical structure (levels: towns, counties, provinces, national) which since 1979 has been elected via approval voting (each level is elected by the preceding one, with the bottom-level elections directly by the people)." https://rangevoting.org/BC2018.html As an American, I grew up thinking China was completely undemocratic. It seems American democracy has things to learn from the system in China.
