    There are five positions on our Executive Board up for re-election:

    • Treasurer (1 position, two year term)
    • Member-At-Large (3 positions, one year term)

    The other two Executive positions (Co-chair Sharon Sommerville and Secretary Kevin Smith) will start the second year of their two year term.

    You can nominate someone at the meeting, or nominate yourself. If you can’t make it to the meeting but would like to stand for nomination then contact me or FairvoteWRC by phone or e-mail (contact info below), and we’ll ensure your name is on the ballot.

    The voting will be by Single Transferable Vote; once elected, the new Executive will decide amongst themselves which positions to fill.

    Anyone who is a member of Fair Vote Canada can vote at the AGM and be nominated for a position on the Executive. You can get or renew your membership ($25) at the meeting, or online at:

Discussion Night: Provincial Election Analysis

The 2018 provincial election gave the usual results: 40% votes, 60% seats, 100% power. But there are more subtle insights; some of FairvoteWRC’s members have given it deeper thought than 40:60:100. If you’ve done some analysis I invite you to come to the Discussion Night portion of the evening and present it, 5 minutes for presentation, plus 5 minutes for Q&A. Please contact me if you have some analysis to present.

See you all there!
