The Springtide Collective, and our community partners are on a mission to find the best voting system for Nova Scotia. Last year, during our Make Democracy Better engagement, participating Nova Scotians told us that exploring alternatives to the first past the post voting system should be a top priority. This Spring (2016) we’re inviting you to join the conversation on voting systems.
This event will be a two hour session, hosted by the Springtide Collective, where participants will:
- learn about 5 different models for voting systems that Nova Scotia could use
- engage in conversation with hosts and other participants with the goal of exploring these models more deeply, and providing input on what the best voting system for Nova Scotia is.
- plug into a province-wide conversation on alternative voting systems, and connect to a growing community of people who like democracy and think it can be done better.
In advance of the event, Springtide will be releasing a discussion paper modelling the five voting systems models that will be discussed at these sessions. RSVP below or join the mailing list to make sure you receive the paper as soon as it is released.
If you'd like to read the paper in advance of the session, you can read the paper here: Better choices: voting system alternatives for Nova Scotia.
