How I will vote in the referendum

In the referendum on Saturday I will vote for change and for Supplementary member.

SM is the Smart Move.  It is the Kiwi compromise that removes the poor features of MMP but retains some representation of smaller groups or parties. It means small parties get into Parliament but unlikely to hold balance of power and pick the PM. No more tail wagging the dog and the best part is it is almost impossible to slide into parliament via the list if you get chucked out in the electorate vote.

Electorate would be smaller and provide a better communities of interest. Huge electorates like Cambridge and Rangitikei would be much smaller.

SM is used by more countries around the world, MMP is used by just two.
