BC STV - a website where you try it out

Demochoice is once again offering a website where people can try out BC STV. You can vote using the real boundaries and the candidates are the ones running in the antiquated and deficient first past the post system we are still using for some reason.

I still wonder why we are using first past the post for the election this time when it was so soundly defeated last time. The public will was clearly against using the system we are using, but the MLAs were simply too afraid to make a change the public wanted because they are too scared to run in competitive elections. Most of our MLAs will be able to spend the month taking it easy because they know they are getting re-elected. Of course they would not choose to go a system that would remove all the safe seats and make them actually have to campaign.
