Kicking the tyres: Choosing a voting system for New Zealand

At the 2011 election in November, voters will get the chance to vote in a referendum on whether New Zealand will keep its Mixed Member Proportional (MMP) voting system. Voters will also get the chance to decide which voting system they would prefer if we do not keep MMP, out of four possible alternatives.

Read our paper:
Kicking the Tyres – Choosing a voting system for New Zealand

If a majority of voters decide that MMP ought to be kept, then parliament has said that there will be a review of MMP to find ways of improving it. The referendum is an opportunity to “kick the tyres on MMP,” and see whether it should be kept or whether the voting system should change.
