Comparing Simple MMP to Other Systems

There are a lot of different voting systems around the world.  These systems form the foundation of democracy, and they need to work well so that the government of the day will have the confidence of the people. Many new systems have been proposed to replace our current system, often called First Past The Post (FPTP). Like a horse race, we elect the single person which has gone the farthest (gained the most votes).  The rest of votes are then discarded.

When we compare voting systems, we need to look at two important but different aspects.  First, we need to be clear about our objectives.  Why are we changing the voting system and what do we hope to get out of the new system?  These are important questions which are worthy of some consideration. For more information on evaluations, see Objectives of a new voting system
