Today we’re not only voting in the Provincial election, but British Columbians are also participating in a referendum on electoral reform. This means we can vote to change our current plurality or “first past the post” electoral process to BC-STV or “single transferable vote”.
I’ve been looking for resources, I had some interview opportunities to learn more, but I just haven’t been able to rally and provide BC-STV information until now. As such, I turned to YouTube for help (I know, that just sounds all kind of ridiculous). I found a nice roundup of videos about the process so I hope they’re helpful as I find it’s nice to have an idea of what you’re voting on when you get your ballot.
Remember to vote today at your local polling station and if you’re following election coverage on Twitter, use the search term #BCElection.
