Referendum in 2018: The recently-elected NDP government in BC plans to hold a referendum on replacing “our outdated voting system with a proportional one” (and to campaign in favour of the reform). The Green Party has joined them in a confidence and supply agreement that commits both parties to consult with British Columbians and campaign in support of updating our voting system. Check out our links below for more information about voting system possibilities for BC.
