A referendum on the electoral system was held in the Democratic Duchy of Francisville on 11 April 2009.

The single transferable vote was chosen with a two-third majority.

Background

A consensus was reached that reforms were necessary to improve the functioning of government. A constitutional assembly, known as the "April Convention", was subsequently organised by Grand Duke James I. The assembly recommended that the existing National Assembly should be replaced with the reformed Chamber of Deputies, elected by either the single transferable vote or mixed-member proportional representation. A referendum was called to decide between these two alternative electoral systems.
