POLL: Would you support some form of electoral reform? — 3 Comments

  1. A change in how we vote will allow, in theory, for better representation. First past the post, or 50%+1 still leaves as much as to 50%-1 people unrepresented. I get that this works for a simple YES/NO type referendum but doesn’t work that great in actually representing the citizens of an electoral area. My biggest concern is an inflation of government due to that increase in the number of representatives that some proportional representation systems advocate; some suggesting doubling the number of representatives. That’s a lot of additional cost in wages, staff, etc, etc.
