Electoral System Referendum

A referendum vote will be held along with the next provincial general election. Voters will receive two ballots in the next election, one to vote for the candidate of their choice in their district and the second ballot to vote on the Electoral System Referendum.

The Referendum ballot will ask the question "Should Prince Edward Island change its voting system to a mixed member proportional voting system?".

There is a threshold set for the referendum of 50% +1 of voters in 60% of the districts to be declared the winner, whether it be for the "No" vote or the "Yes" vote.

Referendum PEI has the responsibility of public education and the disbursement of funds to opponent or proponent groups to promote the electoral system of their choosing. View a list of their public information sessions.
