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 Newfoundland and Labrador Election, we have 30 ridings. And the votes for first-past-the-post candidates sent to Parliament have 61.30% of all votes cast.

Here is an analysis of the Newfoundland and Labrador Election of November 30, 2015



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


Party Seats won % Seats % Votes Votes
Liberal 31 → 31 77.50 → 63.27 57.18 114,195
PC 7 → 13 17.50 → 26.53 30.08 60,080
NDP 2 → 5 5.00 → 10.20 12.08 24,130
Total 49

This is an implicit voter-produced list proportional representation where the 40 ridings now have 49 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.
