I hope you’ll enjoy checking out these web pages – most are based on colorful graphic images except “About VotingBC”, and “Questions and Answers”, which has definitions of “First-Past-The-Post” and “Proportional Representation” among other things. On smartphones you’ll notice some of the graphics here are better viewed in landscape mode
In simple terms, proportional representation gives a legislature closer to the province-wide sentiment. It does this in a way that respects and includes almost every voter’s contribution. The democratic result is that almost every voter will have an MLA a bit closer to their own views.
But what is the practical result? In practice, it turns out that modern voting attracts better candidates, including significantly more women. Pro Rep gives more stable government policy and higher economic growth, by bringing in more consistent true-majority rule. There’s a bigger pie to share.
Thanks for visiting.
