Change the voting system from First Past the Post to Proportional Representation

Petition Details

Change the way we elect Members of Parliament and local representatives so more people's votes will matter.

Additional Information

Because many people have been unrepresented for too long. A large majority of votes cast in 2019 were for candidates who were not elected. FPTP also means that people will vote tactically, which is not how a true democracy should work.


If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
