Why you should vote "No" to AV
David Cameron writes:
"With less than three weeks to go until the AV referendum, we need to do everything we can to convince people to go to the polling stations and vote 'No' on May 5th.
I've been on the campaign trail the last few days, and it's been great to meet voters from right across the political spectrum supporting our campaign.
But it's clear that lots of people still haven't made up their minds - so we've got to keep on working to get the message out there that AV is an unfair, expensive and discredited system.
This is not just about how we vote in General Elections. It's about how politics works, how governments are formed and ultimately, how our country is run.
WHY YOU SHOULD VOTE 'NO' TO AV
AV is unfair: With our current system, everyone gets one vote. But under AV, supporters of extreme parties like the BNP would be more likely to get their votes counted more times, meaning their votes are worth more than yours.
AV is unclear: Under AV, the candidate who finishes third can be declared the winner thanks to an unclear, complicated voting process. It's like someone coming third in a running race winning the gold medal.
AV is unpopular: Just three countries in the world - Fiji, Papua New Guinea and Australia - use AV, compared to almost half the world's electors who use our current system. In Australia, six out of ten people want to get rid of it.
AV is expensive: Calculating the results is a long, complicated process, which could cost the taxpayer millions.
