The people’s campaign launches
At the event a packed room of people passionate about change came together to hear some of the Vice Chairs of the campaign; Kriss Akabusi, Amisha Ghadiali, Eddie Izzard, Greg Dyke, Rowan Davies and Martin Bell, talk about why they are supporting the Alternative Vote.
The Electoral Reform Society has been campaigning to update our electoral system for over a hundred years and in May we finally have the chance to scrap our broken system and replace it with a better one that will see politicians having to work harder for our votes.
With just four weeks to go, the media and wider public are waking up to the exciting reality of the referendum.
The reality is that we finally have a chance to do something about the cynicism and let-downs that have too long dictated our votes. This is our once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to improve the way we do politics in the UK.
Katie Ghose, Chief Executive of the Electoral Reform Society and Chair of Yes to fairer votes
In the last few weeks before the referendum the Yes! campaign will be pulling out all the stops to get people into the polling stations and saying yes to fairer votes.
