First Past the Post's third strike

The last two General Elections showed that our voting system is broken beyond repair. This General Election was no better, with millions of voters ‘holding their nose’ at the ballot box, or left ignored in the hundreds of safe seats across the UK. Sign our petition calling for a fairer, more proportional system to elect MPs.

Petition text:

Our voting system fails at the basic task of representing voters.

This is the third election in a row where Westminster’s voting system has failed to do what it says on the tin – produce ‘strong and stable’ government.

This is a massive wake-up call -  voters no longer deliver hefty majorities for the main parties. With hugely different party results in the different nations of the UK, voters have hit the brick wall that is a broken electoral system.

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.

2017 should be the last election where voters have to 'hold their nose' and vote for the least worse option. It’s time for a fair voting system. 

We call on all the party leaders to make voting reform a reality in this Parliament.
