Voting is the process that is used to create a vibrant and representative democracy. The inventors of democracy were of the view that voting would present a way for people to choose their representatives in national and regional policy making tables (Baron and Diermeier, 2001). The Australian House of Representatives is supposed to consist of people who represent the diverse population in the country. However, the voting system where the winner takes all means that the house representatives do not reflect the will of the people. The voting system currently being used to elect house representatives in Australia has been criticized as discriminative and against the tenets of democracy. It is on this basis that this paper argues that proportional voting system would be a better choice in electing house representatives in Australia. The essay’s method is to offer explanations and arguments why this system would be better than the one being used now.
