Abstract

Proportional representation was introduced in Tasmania
by the Electoral Act of 1896, in which a form of the Hare
system was used for two of the electorates of the House
of Assembly.
The causes which led to the adoption of the Hare system
were thus stated by the late Mr. Justice Andrew Inglis
Clark in the following paragraphs, contributed by him
to the report by Messrs. J. G. Davies and R. M.
Johnston on the elections for the Senate and House of
Representatives in Tasmania in 1901.
The Clark-Hare system of voting was introduced into the
electoral law of Tasmania in consequence of the frequent failure of the ordinary system of voting to secure a proportionate
representation of the preponderating opinions of the electors
on political questions either in single or plural electorates.
