Ontario proposal would let municipalities adopt ranked-ballot voting

Ontario is mulling legislation that would give municipalities the option to switch to ranked ballot voting systems, The Globe and Mail has learned.

The idea would, if enacted, represent a sea change in the way elections are done in Canada, opening the door for the first votes in this country to be conducted without the traditional first-past-the-post system in decades.
