Until now, there have been no publicly available models of electoral district maps for alternate electoral systems. This paper provides those models.
What’s in the paper:
– Proof-of-concept models for four new electoral systems, including electoral maps, ballots, and plain-language explanations. The current system is also modelled.
– Systems modelled include: first-past-the-post, the alternative vote, list proportional representation, mixed member proportional and the single transferable vote.
