A buyer’s guide to electoral systems with Quest’s Doug Munroe and Kaija Belfry-Munroe.
Adopting a new electoral system is like buying a house, or a car – it’s a choice that involves making trade-offs between different values. In this talk, we will describe what those different values are for electoral systems – things like accountability, proportionality, and simplicity – and show how the four choices on the ballot this fall make different trade-offs between those values. Our goal is not to argue in favour of any particular system, but to equip the audience to make a more informed choice when marking their referendum ballots.
