Taking Party off the ballot for representation in a district.

Taking party off the ballot in a vote for representation. Do that and the tables turn. The only thing a party wins is the agenda in Canada (if only they could vote on that), or the Presidency and his/her mandate in the USA. Representatives, preferably each elected by a majority in their district, will likely be supportive of an agenda elected by a majority in a nation wide vote. Every national party could publicly identify whichever and however many of the candidates are acceptable to their supporters.

How to improve Canadian federal elections? (Comparative poll on Election Methods)

House of Commons of Canada

The House of Commons of Canada is comprised of 338 Members of Parliament (MPs) elected in single-member districts using Plurality Voting. The elections to elect the 338 MPs are called the Canadian federal election. MPs are elected for four years.

Voting in the poll below is made as a direct comparison with the current system. Each option in the poll is a proposed improvement on the current system. It may include a variety of Election methods to use in each of the current 338 single-member districts, as well as other proposed improvements.

Creating a new poll on election methods

I'm thinking about creating a new poll, reserved to members, on election methods. There are a few existing polls on the topic, but they are badly phrased or do not correspond to what I am after right now.

The main characteristic of the poll would be that it is comparative to the methods currently used. The question would be: how much better (or worse) would the given EM be compared to the existing method.
