There are three systems of proportional representation that you can choose from this fall. We believe that all three options would be better for our province than our existing system.
Dual Member PR
Most ridings in the province would have two MLAs, with a few rural ridings continuing to have one MLA, as they do now.
Voters would elect a candidate from the party that gets the most overall votes in each riding, and would elect a second candidate based on the proportion of the vote each party’s candidates received across the region.
Mixed Member PR
Voters would continue to vote for a local candidate, and would also cast a vote for a regional candidate.
Regional MLAs would be elected to make sure that a party’s share of the vote in each region is reflected in the region’s election results.
Rural Urban PR
Voters would use the single-transferable vote for urban areas, and mixed member proportional in rural areas.
In rural areas, additional MLAs would be elected at a regional level, to make sure that a party’s share of the vote in each region is reflected in the region’s election results.
