STV Referendum defeated

During the provincial election, voters were asked if they favoured a form of proportional representation or the current first-past the post system.

Supporters of the single-transferable vote, known as BC-STV argued it ensures no votes are wasted, but critics charged it reduces MLA accountability.

The issue was first put to a referendum in 2005 after a citizen’s assembly chose STV as the system it preferred for the province.

But the threshold was high.

STV needed 60 per cent of the popular vote and more than 50 per cent of the votes in at least 51 of the province’s ridings in order to pass.
