What is proportional representation?

Proportional representation (PR) just means that the percentage of seats a party has in the Yukon Legislature should reflect the percentage of Yukoners who supported that party.

With proportional representation, voters can vote for who they really want. They don’t need to vote strategically.

If a party gets 40% of the vote, they will get about 40% of the seats.

With proportional representation, parties will work together more often.

Every law passed in the Yukon Legislature will have the support of a majority. That means better decisions for everyone.
