Attorney General David Eby says some of the feedback so far indicates if proportional representation is a “go” in this fall’s referendum, people are requesting a second referendum be held after two election cycles….
The referendum on electoral reform will be held no later than November 30th of this year through a mail-in ballot, with results binding at a threshold of 50 percent plus one vote province-wide.
The government says if a new voting system is approved, legislation will be introduced in time for the 2021 provincial general election.
