How to use "Substratal" in context?

Substratal is a new democratic electoral system that is set to be used in the United Kingdom in 2020. The system is based on the principle of proportional representation, but introduces an extra layer of voting - the substratal vote. This is a ballot that allows voters to choose one candidate from a party or independent list, as well as one constituency candidate. The vote is not counted as part of the overall result, but is used to determine how many seats each party or independent candidate is awarded.

Substratal voting has been used in a number of parliamentary democracies around the world, including New South Wales, Canada, and Germany.
