Until November 30, 2018, the Yukon government is holding an online public engagement to collect feedback on electoral reform.
Right now, all Canadian provinces and territories use the same “first past the post” electoral system. Some jurisdictions have held referendums to ask the public whether they want to switch to another type of electoral system. B.C. and P.E.I. will hold new referendums on this topic in the fall of 2018 and 2019, respectively.
Yukon is looking to assemble a Commission on Electoral Reform to research, educate, and report on how the territory should hold a vote.
The survey should take no more than 10 to 15 minutes and will help the Territory prepare materials, agenda items, and priorities for the Commission. To learn more, you can read Yukon’s electoral reform information pamphlet.
