Vote Swap Riding Support



THANK YOU!

You have made this movement possible. Together we worked against a Harper majority governement and we can now celebrate for it didn't happen.

Stephen Harper broke his own law on fixed election dates because he thought he could win a majority of the seats with a minority of the votes. You stood up against it in masses. This is your victory!

This group has grown beyond our wildest expectations and the heavy media coverage has reached Canadians coast to coast. The massive participation in the group is a sign of flaws that plague our electoral system. As voters, we should not have to go through such a complicated process to ensure that our vote is not ‘wasted’ because we support a candidate that isn’t likely to win our riding.

Canada has roughly 23 million voters, we should all have an equal say in how parliament is comprised. If the Conservatives only get 35% of the votes, they should only get 35% of the seats. If the NDP get 20% of the vote, shouldn’t they make up 20% of parliament?

To truly achieve the principle of one person equals one vote, we need electoral reform and a shift to proportional representation. Until Canadians achieve it, our group will continue to promote vote swapping and we hope to see, with your help, the question of electoral reform reach political debates.

All members of Anti-Harper Vote Swap Canada want to thank our members, supporters and partners who promoted the ABC vote. Together, we have made history during this 40th General Election. And this is just the beginning.


This is the list of support by ridings we released before the election. We will keep it active for a few days.
