Here’s a video explaining the options on the 2018 BC Referendum. The options include the current First Past the Post voting system, and three forms of proportional representation. Here’s how each proportional system is summarized in the video:
- Dual Member Proportional maintains 100% local MLAs
- Mixed Member Proportional mixes local and regional representation
- Rural Urban Proportional maximizes voter choice
The video was animated and produced by Brendan Gallagher, and I collaborated with him on writing the script. Hopefully it will help British Columbians learn about proportional representation and gain a basic understanding of the options.
