As I said, we have [län](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%C3%A4n), which are equivalent to states, counties, provinces, or whatever they’re called in other countries. We also have [municipalities (kommun)](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Municipalities_of_Sweden), which are usually just a city and neighbouring land.
Voting is done for the entire country, we just have one “chamber” in our [parliament (riksdag)](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Riksdag), everyone votes on their party, and the party gets assigned a percentage of seats depending on how many percent of the votes they get. Simple. Keep in mind that the whole country is comparable to a US state in population (10 million).
We also vote for each landsting, which governs each län, I’m not sure exactly what their responsibility is, I know they handle stuff like hospitals. Then we also vote in each municipality, they are fairly important and handle most local politics.
