Task: Using only relevant lectures and relevant course readings (except for information about the relevant ward as explained below) you will analyze the political options of one voter, Citizen X, in the last election. Using hypothetical information provided below about the voter and her family, you will draw inferences about what her political preferences might have been, and for whom she might have voted. Based on your analysis, you will develop an argument about how and why Citizen X would have voted. Your thesis statement should answer the question: Who should Citizen X have voted for, and why? Your essay must also incorporate answers to the following questions (NOT as a list). NOTE: To answer these questions you must research the demography and political profile of this ward as a whole (not just Citizen X). All sources you use MUST be cited both in-text and in your bibliography. What Ward does Citizen X live in? Who were the candidates running in her ward in the city council election in October 2018?

Which candidate did Citizen Xs family support in this election, and why? Why did/did not the candidate she supported win? (Why did other people in her ward vote the same way, or vote differently from her?). Drawing directly from Pippa Norris description of how electoral systems work, how would the election outcome, in this ward, have been different under a multi-member district proportional representation system?
