My name is Julien Lamarche(@cyclingzealot). I am a volunteer for Fair Vote Canada(@FairVoteCanada), an organization that does public education and lobbying to change the voting system so that more votes count.That's it folks!
If you're seeing this message, there's probably something that changed in the data source of the election agency meaning the code can't compile results anymore! Head over to http://www.fairvote.ca/ or http://wastedvotes.ca for more data
Winner-take-all systems (both first past the post and preferential ballot - ie Alternative Vote) have a high rate of wasted or unrepresented votes. But most democracies have moved on to some form of proportional voting system which greatly diminish the lack of representation (to about 5% of unrepresented votes). A proportional voting system also eliminates false government majorities.
