Try out BC STV online!

This is really cool!

Some ingenious folks have created a website that mimics a BC Election using the BC-STV system.

You can select your riding, choose your candidates, and then see how your vote gets processed. I “voted” multiple times by going to different ridings so that I could see how my vote worked if I voted in different ways. Make sure you click on the “All Rounds” link when you get to the results so that you can see how the votes get transferred through all the rounds.

It is very interesting. And while it is clear it will take longer to have a final result under STV, it sure will be nice to have the choice and to be able to elect different foks from different parties! It really works!
