Liberal Democrat MPs, led by Deputy Prime Minster Nick Clegg, have voted in Parliament to give people an opportunity to throw out the archaic First Past the Post system.
Up and down the country activists are coming together to campaign to replace that system with the Alternative Vote (AV).
AV is a fairer system which forces MPs to work harder to earn and keep your support.
Over the months until the referendum on May 5, 2011 the Fairer Votes Campaign from the Liberal Democrats will be fighting hard for a ‘yes’ vote. It will not be easy to win, defeating the voices of conservatism who want to keep the status quo because it protects them from the will of the masses.
