In BC, on May 12th, we are having a general election at the provincial level of government. I am struggling with my apathy around that...
But, what has grabbed my interest is that we are also having a referendum on electoral reform. BCers will be asked which electoral system British Columbia should use to elect members to the Legislative Assembly... the current First-Past-the-Post system (FPTP) or the single transferable vote system (BC-STV).
I've done my head in, reading about the pros and cons. I'm very much inclined to vote for the STV.
I'm blogging about this because I'm wondering if people here in BC and in different parts of the world have experiences, feedback, opinions, etc about the electoral systems used in their elections, especially if STV is used.
