Yes to Fairer Votes: Launch of the peoples' campaign for Fairer Votes

Yes to Fairer Votes
This morning we launched our peoples' campaign for Fairer Votes, and a few friends dropped by to lend a hand.

I didn't want you to miss this momentous occasion so we've filmed it for you - after all, it's your campaign.

Watch the highlights to find out why our Vice Chairs Kriss Akabusi, Amisha Ghadiali, Eddie Izzard, Greg Dyke, Rowan Davies and Martin Bell are saying Yes to AV.

You and I both know that this campaign launched months ago; but 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.

We won't win this referendum just by hoping - we have to work for it. The naysayers, the cynics and their allies in the media don't want change - the status quo works fine for them.

But does it work for you?

Watch the video to find out what our supporters had to say this morning, then share it to inspire everyone you know to vote on 5 May.

Thank you for all that you are doing for fairer votes. It's more important than ever to keep it up.

PS As I said at the rally, we really do need people to donate their 5th May to getting the vote out on polling day.  Please pledge your day here:
