Our Mission.

About Us


UvoteBC is a website created by forty-four Political Science students at the University of British Columbia. we created UvoteBC to be an informative tool for British Columbians on the 2018 BC Referendum.

This website is a non-partisan tool meant to inform British Columbians. We wish that all visitors will use the information on UvoteBC to cast an informed vote. 



Constitution

Manifesto

We, the class of Political Science 308, intend to cultivate a safe and inclusive classroom environment for the purpose of creating an educational website.

We will produce an evolving, non-partisan resource for the public on the topic of the 2018 BC Referendum on Electoral Reform that will aid voters in making an informed decision.

Commitments

We commit to extend learning beyond the classroom using proven and progressive methods.

We will manage our expectations, communicate with each other, and deliver a finished website that encompasses the vision our class.

Our website will be created with the intention of making a real world impact in regards to the 2018 BC Referendum on Electoral Reform. We will acknowledge inequalities in our society while creating the website.

Conflict will be resolved in a peaceful manner that all parties can agree to without damaging relationships.


Principles 

We believe that citizens have a right to accurate information free from bias. We intend to use, value, and celebrate a variety of skills while creating this website.

We believe that decisions, while not necessarily unanimous, must be made while consulting everyone involved and with a majority agreeing to the course of action.

We accept, as political science students of UBC, that we have a certain perspective relative to others that may produce a biased opinion regarding the referendum, but nevertheless, we will do our best to not let this hinder our efforts in creating a non-partisan website resource for the public. 

Goals 

Our goal is to create an educative website that is accessible to as much people are we can possibly manage.

We will consider the public’s oral, written, and language abilities while creating our website. We will use a wide variety of tools for communication and to pass information to each other and to the public.

Throughout the course, we will grow, learn new skills, and complete this project with a better understanding of referendums and electoral reform.
