What it needs to win:
For the referendum to be binding, the approval level must be:
- more than 50% of the votes in at least 51 of the province's 85 electoral districts, AND
- at least 60% of the total popular vote, province-wide.
If the two thresholds are met, government is required to introduce legislation to implement BC-STV in sufficient time for it to be in place for the May 2013 General Election.
