STV or FPP for BC: Is the expected change in proportionality between votes and seats beneficial to British Columbians?

  • Yes, the new system allows individual votes to count more.

    Yes, the expected change in proportionality between votes and seats is beneficial to British Columbians, because it essentially allows each vote to have greater input. Although the new system is more complicated, it will likely result in greater voter turnout because each voter knows that their vote is likely to have greater influence. The system will result in elected officials that have more public support, and can therefore be more effective.

  • No, it is too confusing.

    No, the expected change in proportionality between votes is not beneficial to British Columbians, because it makes understanding the vote too complicated. People can understand that one vote counts for one person. It is harder to understand when votes start counting in different ways. People will not have faith in the outcomes with this system.
