Yes to AV: Where are we now?

Yes to Fairer Votes
We have been working hard over the last months to make the UK say Yes in next May's referendum, and let me thank you for everything you have done.

So far, over 150,000 Yes campaigners like you, MPs from all parties, and even Kevin Webster from Corrie have all spoken out and said Yes to AV.

It's great that so many politicians are supporting this campaign, but this change in voting is about people rather than politicians.

It is about what we the people want, not what the politicians tell us we should have.

And in the New Year you will see a step change in our campaign.

Watch my video to see how far we have come, and an outline for what we have to do over the next four months.

You've made a great start - the latest polls show that we are in the lead with voters who have already decided.

But with over a third of voters yet to decide, there's still a long way to go.

I look forward to working with you in 2011 to achieve a fairer way of doing politics in the UK. Together we can win this referendum.

This is our chance to change our politics. Be part of the change.

Thank you and Merry Christmas,

Jonathan Bartley

P.S. Don't forget to keep up the campaigning over Christmas. Let your family know why they should say Yes on 5 May!
