Ben is joined by psephologist Henry Schlechta to discuss two issues of democratic reform in Victoria: the arguments around abolishing group voting tickets, and the implementation of single-member wards for urban Victorian councils. Sadly this isn’t a story of Victoria improving its electoral systems – mostly they are getting worse or staying the same.
- Ben’s podcast with Kevin from November 2022 discussing the problems with group voting tickets.
- Ben’s estimates of who would have won seats in the Victorian upper house under different systems.
- Ben’s blog post about the single-member ward reviews happening in Victoria.
