Synopsis: Open and competitive elections governed by widely accepted rules and procedures are essential to the legitimacy of any political system. Elections assesses the history and development of five building blocks of the Canadian electoral regime: the franchise, electoral districts, voter registration, election machinery, and plurality voting.

Arguing that on balance the Canadian electoral system is truly democratic, John Courtney demonstrates its vast improvements over the years. The right to vote is now generously interpreted. The process of redrawing electoral districts is no longer in the hands of elected officials. Voter registration lists include all but a small whare of eligible voters. And those who manage and supervise elections on behalf of all citizens are honest and trustworthy officials. Using the recent push for reform of the plurality vote system as one example, Courtney also examines why certain electoral institutions have been amenable to change and others have not.

In a democracy it is important for citizens to understand the most essential parts of their own electoral system. Elections is an ideal primer for undergraduate students, journalists, politicians, and citizens interested in the current state of Canadian democracy.

Book Description: This first volume of the Canadian Democratic Audit series is a concise analysis of the complex history, development, and issues surrounding the Canadian electoral system.

Book Description University of British Columbia Press. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Elections, John C. Courtney, Open and competitive elections governed by widely accepted rules and procedures are essential to any political system's legitimacy. This volume, by eminent political scientist John Courtney, assesses the history and development of five "building blocks" of Canada's electoral regime: the franchise, electoral districts, voter registration, election machinery, and plurality voting. Arguing that on balance, Canada's electoral regime can be judged to be truly democratic, the book demonstrates the vast improvements that have been made over the years: the right to vote is generously interpreted; the process of redrawing electoral districts is no longer in the hands of elected officials; voter registration lists include all but a small share of eligible voters; and those who manage and supervise elections on behalf of all citizens are honest and trustworthy officials. Using the recent push for the reform of the plurality vote system as one example, it also examines why certain electoral institutions have been amenable to reform and others have not. In a democracy such as Canada's, it is important for citizens to understand the most essential parts of their electoral system. This book is designed with this goal in mind. A concise analysis of complex issues, it presents reasoned judgments on links between electoral institutions and representative democracy, and is an ideal primer for undergraduate students, journalists, politicians, and anyone interested the current state of Canadian democracy. A concise analysis of the complex history, development, and issues surrounding the Canadian electoral system. Bookseller Inventory # B9780774809177
