With record voter turnout of more than 1.6 million, voters in British Columbia on May 17th overwhelmingly supported Choice Voting (ranked voting) to elect their legislature. Although the reform initiative fell just short of the required 60% threshold, the campaign garnered an unambiguous yes-vote of 57.4%. It also won a majority of the votes cast in a remarkable 97% of districts from all over the province, with broad support in both rural and urban districts. Now it is up to the legislature to carry out the will of the majority of voters and enact this fairer system. You can find out more about this historic development here.
