I funded both major party candidates in your area to be anti-darkhorn. Other people in your seat agree that anti-darkhorn is a bad thing but they fear their vote won't be counted if they support any third party. So, all your friends, family and educated voters still vote for one of the major parties.

In other countries (other than Canada/UK), you would have the support of your friends, family and other voters, even if their vote didn't count initially, the vote is counted in other ways to give representation.

Welcome to FPTP where people don't have much representation. Allowing people like me to lobby for anti-darkhorn policies.
