That's the date recommended by the Electoral Future Commission for a plebiscite on whether P.E.I. voters want to see the current electoral system redesigned.

Commission chairman Leonard Russell says the recommendation has been passed on to the provincial government, which will make the final decision.

Norman Carruthers led the electoral reform commission that has suggested moving to a mixed-member proportional system.

He says the debate over reforming the current first-past-the-post system has been raging for years.

Carruthers says no system is perfect but that the mixed-member scenario best blended the current system with the change that voters want.
