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

How does the MMP proposal differ from our current electoral system?

ANSWER

The MMP proposal that all Ontarians will vote on in the October 10 referendum will mark a great change in the way citizens of Ontario elect their representatives.

Under MMP, the voter will be given two votes. They can vote for a local candidate as they would do under our current system, and they also vote for the individual parties as well.

Under the proposed model, the Ontario legislature will consist of 129 seats. Local constituency races will determine 90 of those seats, as it is under the current electoral system. But the other 39 seats will be proportional or list seats and will be used to top up parties' seat totals so that the proportion of seats that each party gets corresponds to the proportion of votes that each party gets in the party vote. If a party fails to get 3% of the overall vote, they will not receive any seats in the legislature.
