Another Dutch city, Haaren, to use Approval Voting
The municipality of Landerd had a referendum last year on how to restructure itself. It used Approval Voting with six options.

I just read today that yet another Dutch city is going to follow the same process for a three-option initiative.

Future Haaren is not a matter of yes / no
Posted January 7, 2016; Last update January 7th, 21:35;
 
HAAREN - not a simple yes or no residents van Haaren can 'vote' on the division of their community. In a consultative referendum, they can choose from three options. Or actually four, since blank votes should too. The referendum will be held on April 6. The residents then give their views on the proposed decision of the Council to split eventually Haaren, "if all villages a future-proof and powerful management solution is available."
 
They have three choices:
1. The municipality
remains independent;
2. The congregation eventually split up;
3. the congregation split as soon as possible.
Multiple options may tick
