What are we voting about?
Between October 22 and November 30, BC residents have the opportunity to shape the way they vote in provincial elections — electing local MLAs and ultimately provincial governments. A referendum is being held to decide what voting system should be used.
Voters will be asked two questions on the referendum ballot.
- The first question asks if we should keep the current First Past the Post voting system or move to a system of proportional representation.
- The second question asks voters to rank three proportional systems: Dual Member Proportional (DMP), Mixed Member Proportional (MMP), and Rural-Urban Proportional (RUP).
Watch the accompanying videos to get a quick overview of the four proposed systems.
