Here is a specific alternative system to first past the post

Follows is a system that adds seats to existing Ridings from that Riding's candidates in order to maximize proportional representation.

As of the 2015 Alberta Election, we have 87 ridings. And the votes for first-past-the-post candidates sent to Parliament have 46.06% of all votes cast.

Here is an analysis of the Alberta Election of May 5, 2015




After applying this method, we now have these new results.


Party Seats won % Seats % Votes Votes
NDP 54 → 54 62.07 → 50.94 40.60 604,084
Wildrose 21 → 21 24.14 → 19.81 24.23 360,511
PC 10 → 27 11.49 → 25.47 27.80 413,612
Liberal 1 → 3 1.15 → 2.83 4.18 62,153
Alberta Party 1 → 1 1.15 → 0.94 2.24 33,350

This is an implicit voter-produced list proportional representation where the 87 ridings now have 106 members in the legislature. For a few ridings the voters will be assured that their second representative in Parliament has not been selected from outside their riding, but comes from their own riding votes on the day of the election. This Proportional Representation model is the simplest solution for democratic reform.
