What people are saying about MMP...

"Howard Hampton's riding is the size of France. By reducing the number of ridings, you will be increasing the remaining ridings' sizes. Does this really serve to help with the representation of the people when the MPP cannot easily or realistically travel all over his/her riding?" - Brendon Bedford, Waterloo, ON

QUESTION

I have heard that voter turnout would go up if we implement MMP. Is that true?

ANSWER

No, there is no way to guarantee that. Low voter turnout is a problem all over the world. And while it is true that MMP countries have higher voter turnout than FPTP countries, their voter turnout levels are falling as well. However, voter turnout in the United States and Canada, two FPTP countries, went up in recent elections

The best example is from New Zealand. In 1996 they changed from our FPTP system to MMP. They have had four elections under MMP, and three of those elections have had the three lowest voter turnouts in New Zealand history.
