A Yukon Citizens’ Assembly on Electoral Reform: An Important Opportunity for Positive Change
The Yukon Legislature’s Special Committee on Electoral Reform is reaching out to Yukoners in winter of 2023. All Yukon households should receive an invitation to complete a short survey, asking if Yukoners support the creation of a Yukon Citizens’ Assembly on Electoral Reform.
This is an exciting opportunity to make democracy better. When you get the invitation from the Yukon Special Committee on Electoral Reform to complete the survey, say YES to a Yukon Citizens’ Assembly!
Electoral reform is too important to be left to politicians alone. Yukon citizens can lead the way, with a Yukon Citizens’ Assembly on Electoral Reform.
A citizens’ assembly is an independent, non-partisan body. A Yukon Citizens’ Assembly would bring together citizens from every community. They would learn from experts, reach out to Yukoners across the territory, and make a recommendation to the Yukon Legislative Assembly. Learn more about citizens assemblies.
First past the post is not serving Yukon voters. It’s time to explore how we can make democracy better – with a citizen-led process we can trust. Change is our hands. What happens next could depend on us!
