Smart voting, smart outcomes

By Christopher Majka

ProjectDemocracy.ca’s predictive model shows 49 Key Contest ridings in Canada that are significantly in play in terms of Conservative or non-Conservative outcomes. These show that “smart voting” benefits all the opposition parties and could have a significant effect on the election.

Let's make a difference together.

Welcome to ProjectDemocracy.ca.

Canadians don’t have an electoral system that directly reflects the ballot box.  With our 'first-past-the-post' electoral system, vote splitting means Canadians could end up with a majority Harper Government with as little as 35 percent of the popular vote.  This is not the outcome most Canadians want, and avoiding it requires voter knowledge and cooperation.
