As part of its study of potential changes to the voting system, the Special Committee on Electoral Reform had the Yukon Bureau of Statistics administer a survey on electoral systems in early 2022. The Bureau’s May 31, 2022, report on that survey is available on the committee’s webpage. The current follow-up survey will focus on the potential use of a citizens’ assembly to assess electoral systems and to recommend whether the current system should be retained or another system should be adopted.

A citizens’ assembly (also known as a citizens’ jury, citizens’ panel, or policy jury) is an independent, non-partisan body formed of randomly selected individuals from a pool of citizens to deliberate on important issues.

To fulfill its mandate to examine electoral reform, the Special Committee on Electoral Reform has also collected written submissions and held hearings with expert witnesses and the general public online and in communities across the territory between January 21 and September 14, 2022. The committee released an interim report on November 24, 2022.

The committee must complete its work and report its findings and recommendations by the 2023 Spring Sitting of the Legislative Assembly.
