CHARLOTTETOWN -- The P.E.I. government has announced a fall plebiscite on electoral reform that could change the face of the province's political landscape.

Islanders will go to the polls Nov. 28 to choose between a system of proportional representation and the current first-past-the-post system.

In the meantime, the Commission on P.E.I.'s Electoral Future is launching an intensive public education program to engage Islanders in a debate over the way provincial politicians are elected.

Public meetings have been scheduled across the province beginning Sept. 12.
