About ElectionDistrictsVoting.com Voting Reforms
Thank you for visiting ElectionDistrictsVoting.com.
The big problem with nearly all of our existing electoral systems is they prevent either all or large proportions of voters from directly electing personally chosen candidates. We can fix this fundamental flaw in the way we elect representatives. ElectionDistrictsVoting.com has one simple overriding concept that can consistently be applied across three different electoral systems, reforming them all to enable unprecedented proportions of voters to directly elect preferred candidates.
Informing electors about the statistically better election success and representation quality they get by switching from outdated electoral systems to one of our reformed electoral systems is vital to improving the legitimacy of political representation. If you want to make a difference in this pursuit – just tell others.

Subject: Elect Your Preferred Representative of Choice Virtually Every Time You Vote
Thought you would be interested in knowing how you and everyone else can elect their chosen representative nearly every time everyone votes.
ElectionDistrictsVoting.com has three types of reformed electoral systems to enable you to elect your representative of choice. They include:
- First Past The Post Proportional Representation (FPTP PR) electoral systems. These systems enable about 75% to about 94% or more voters to elect preferred candidates.
- Alternative Vote Proportional Representation (AV PR) electoral systems. These systems enable about 79% to about 96% or more voters to elect preferred candidates.
- Reformed Single Transferable Vote (Reformed STV) electoral systems. These systems enable about 89% to about 96% or more voters to elect preferred candidates. What’s more, large (many representatives per district) and complex multi-member districts are not required to obtain the high election rate results. The results are obtained from small (few representatives per district) and simple two and three-member districts.
As shown above, the election success rate of some electoral system models approach 100%. This makes proportional representation close to perfect.
The main difference between reformed and unreformed electoral system counterparts is the overlapping election districts reform. With overlapping districting reform, voters vote in local districts as usual and then in each overlapping district of residence on the ballot instead of voting in only one local district of residence. That’s basically all there is to enabling large proportions of voters to elect representatives of choice. It’s that simple.
Here’s how more voters elect. When voters fail to directly elect a preferred candidate from a local first voting district of residence, they get a second chance to directly elect a preferred candidate from a larger overlapping second voting district of residence. This voting process repeats itself for each additional overlapping election district on the ballot. This means voters have two or more chances to personally elect candidates of their own personal choosing. As can be deduced, the voting process can ensure nearly all voters can elect candidates of their own personal choice to legislatures.
Election districts reform makes a big difference to the election results of voters. For example, consider the FPTP PR three election chances model that enables about 88% or more voters to personally succeed in electing chosen representatives. Only about 12% of voters fail to elect in this model in comparison to the present FPTP model where about 50% of voters typically fail to elect. As these comparative election rates indicate, the FPTP PR model is inherently better at enabling voters to win the right to preferred representation than the traditional FPTP election system model is.
In summary, each of the electoral systems listed above enables large proportions of voters to elect candidates of direct personal choice. This improves the quality of representation and the way politics works.
We can all take part in improving the quality of our political representation by strengthening the way the election process works. So tell government leaders and your local representative, you can do better than your current electoral system by switching to a FPTP PR, AV PR or Reformed STV electoral system. Also inform others and if you want, write a letter to the editor.
