STV just won't die

Demochoice BC's City Vote 2005 includes an alternative ballot for Burnaby, which allows voters to elect an at-large council using a STV ballot. The voter education organization, wishes to inform voters about what they believe to be an effective way of providing a more representative sample of the electorate's choice. The site provides detailed instructions.

As of the time of this posting, candidates elected by those participating in the poll are, in order of election, Gary Begin (TEAM), Pietro Calendino (BCA), Gary Eyre (TEAM), Nancy Harris (Ind.), Dan Johnston (BCA), Lee Rankin (TEAM), Leslie Roosa (BCA), and Nick Volkow (BCA). This is likely to change as candidates and their supporters ramp up their efforts to stack the results.

Currently ballots are also available for Coquitlam (at-large) and Vancouver (at-large and in three wards). Future cities to be added include Delta, Nelson/Creston, North Vancouver (unclear if it is city or district), Richmond, Victoria, and West Vancouver.

Just entertainment. Means nothing.

The political hacks will get in there and pad the results like they always do.

It's a waste even going there. Results mean nothing.
