Quoted 2018 BC referendum on electoral reform by William BorixWilliam Borix (William Borix)
My vote on the 2018 electoral reform referendum has been cast and mailed to @electionsbc. I voted for adopting a proportional representation of elected officials and parties. #BCReferendum #bcpoli #vote

As a follow-up to my previous post, the referendum results were announced. The proportional representation system has been defeated in favor of the current first-past-post system, an archaic voting method where freedom is a privilege to a caste of few, rather than the society at large.

My vote on the 2018 electoral reform referendum has been cast and mailed to Elections BC. I voted for adopting a proportional representation of elected officials and parties. We need more voices to be heard in the legislature.

As a side advice, do not cast your vote for its own sake. Rather, do your research to understand what the various electoral schemes imply in how you might be represented.
