Cornwall Loves Fairer Votes this Valentine’s Day!

This Valentines' Day, Love Fairer Votes

This Valentines' Day, Love Fairer Votes

The Yes to Fairer Votes campaign team could be found on Marazion beach this weekend, honing their ‘sand art’ skills (as shown in the picture above) and highlighting that this Valentines’ Day, Cornwall should fall in love with Fairer Votes.

The referendum on changing the the current First Past the Post electoral system to the fairer Alternative Vote (AV) system, is due to take place on May 5th.

The benefits of Fairer Votes are:

The winner has to get 50% of the vote in a Parliamentary constituency to win. Currently many MPs are elected despite more people voting against them than for them.

All MPs would have to work as hard as our MP Andrew George to get the support of enough people to win.

Its as easy as 1, 2, 3 . . .

Upcoming Meetings:

Public meetings hosted by Nathan Hollow, to discuss the issue of changing the electoral system are due to be held at;

Tyack’s Hotel, Camborne, Tuesday 15th February, 7:30pm

The Griffin, Newquay, Thursday 17th February, 7:30pm

All are welcome.

To get involved in the campaign for fairer votes, or for more information, contact Nathan Hollow via or 07811153843 or visit
