Link of the Day: Pair Vote

“Vote swapping takes aim at hotly contested ridings. For this election, Pair Vote matches voters in close races (swing riding) with each other, or with one who is in a riding where [the] winner is already known, to maximize voting impact. Both voters ensure a vote for their party of choice, plus one or two votes has a real chance of electing someone. That’s the best vote swapping can do within our broken voting system.”

Pair Vote was founded during the 2008 election, “as a means to bring attention to the need for voting reform.” If nothing else, it certainly makes its point.
