Once again our voting system has failed voters.
The new Parliament doesn't match the way we voted.
Our voting system was designed for an era when almost everyone voted for the two big parties. But people have changed: they support a wider range of parties than ever before. It’s time the system caught up with how we actually vote.
We want a fairer, more proportional voting system which ensures that seats in Parliament match the way people vote. This would make sure people’s choices were fairly reflected in Parliament, and would allow everyone to vote for someone they believe in.
2015 should be the last election where seats don’t match votes. It’s time for a fair voting system.
We call on all the party leaders to make voting reform a reality in this Parliament.
