Proportional Representation Society of Australia: "The Proportional Representation Society of Australia is a society which promotes the Hare Clark Quota Preferential method of Proportional Representation (Quota Preferential is also known as Single Transferable Vote or STV). Many electoral systems have major flaws which can result in apparently democratic elections having very undemocratic outcomes. While no electoral system is perfect, Hare Clark is free from these major flaws and has a great deal to commend it. It is a fair and practical way to implement representative democracy in organizations ranging from small local clubs to large countries and international organizations."

To receive the latest copies of the Society's quarterly newsletter 'Quota Notes' you need to become a member. Back issues of Quota notes are available online here.
