Estonia is one of the few countries of the former communist bloc, which before the formal obtaining independence, started discussion about the reform of electoral law. As a result of compromise of the main political forces, it was decided to adopt a complex, three - tier proportional electoral system. The main aim of this article is examine the numerous changes made to Estonian electoral law between 1992 and 2015. For over 20 years, can be seen three main directions of changes in the electoral law: striving to reduce electoral actors and candidates taking part in elections, increasing the number of seats distributed at the district level and increasing voter turnout.(original abstract)
