Ontario Votes: Voting Format Referendum

This article was modified from its original published form. The most recent modification was on2014-09-29.

There’s a referendum going on in Ontario on how we will vote in the future. Others summarize it far better than I do:

I don’t think that it’s a bad system, but I am concerned about the reduction in the number of geographically-bound seats (ridings) from 107 to 90; I’d rather see us have 120 geographically-bound seats and an additional 29 “list” seats. I haven’t really decided which way I’m going to vote on it, but I am edging in favour of it. Still, it’s interesting stuff and if you’re an Ontarian, you really need to vote on this. Updated 2007.09.24: Added the link to the Spacing web resources for MMP. It’s important to note that MMP isn’t just a random proposal, but something strongly considered by fellow Ontarians.
