BC-STV is the Buzz Online

April 9, 2009

Read this press release : BC-STV is the talk of the internets.

Alright, that’s what I’m talking about!  Everyone probably knows already which of the two parties they are going to vote for anyways.  They may even vote for a third or fourth party and hope with all their might that they’ll win even though they know that our antiquated first-past-the-post couting system makes this very unlikely.

On twitter the buzz is definitely heating up, many back and forth exchanges from both sides and from regular lurkers who haven’t enough info to decide yet (#bcstv).  Recently, there’s even a bit of competition to try to come up with tweetable descriptions of BC-STV and FPTP (see #tweetbcstv).  Its hard to simplify an entire electoral system to 140 characters, no matter how simple it is.  But that doesn’t stop people from trying and it creates some fun discussion.  We’re going to track the best answers on our #tweetbcstv page
