(3) First past the post, needs no explanation this is the system in use now. .
(4) First past the post plus leader, party leaders would no longer have to run in their districts, but could be elected representing the whole Province, if the popular vote for a party reaches 10%. Adding two more leader seats seems honourary, it would be easy for a majority government to ignore those voices This is a token offering to appease small party’s. Its not proportional or fair. As I said before-smoke and mirrors.
(5) Preferential Voting – district remains the same, one MLA. Voters mark the ballot in order of choice. 50% plus one is required to win a district. If no candidate has that many 1 votes the candidate with the least votes support is eliminated and those votes flow to the 2nd choices from those ballots. This continues until one candidate attains 50% plus one.
This PV system reminds me of musical chairs . Smoke and mirrors designed to confuse the voter. If you really want positive change for the better then the best choices are (1) Dual Member proportional, or Mixed Member proportional.
