Tim Farron: Join the Lib Dem Yes! To Fairer Votes campaign

Originally published by UK Liberal Democrats

We heard speeches from Floella Benjamin, Simon Hughes MP, John Leech MP and Gordon Birtwistle MP on how incredibly important it is that we win the Fairer Votes referendum.

As Nick Clegg has already argued, this is "a battle between reformers and conservatives" and this is our chance, our one opportunity for genuine electoral reform. By winning this referendum we can end the nonsense of safe seats for life and ensure that MPs work harder to win your votes. We can ensure that there will be no more wasted votes and that your vote will count no matter where in the country you live.

So what can you do?

  • Find out what your local party is doing to support the Yes! campaign here.

This is the most important vote of our lives so far and we need the support of each and every one of you.

No matter how you choose to get involved just remember this: for the first time in our lifetimes we have the chance to bring real democratic reform to our politics and if we lose... it will be the last time in our lifetimes.
