AGM 2018: Our preferred way to change the voting system

Our preferred way to change the voting system

Proposer: Alan Debenham        

Seconder:  –

This meeting resolves:

1.   To adopt as our preferred way to change the voting system in local and general elections is:

a.  All existing electoral wards or constituencies to have their boundaries enlarged by about 10% in terms of total voter numbers

b.  The resulting correlated 10% cut in number of Councillors or MPs to be put into ‘regional top-up pools’ for allocation to parties in that region, on the basis of ensuring that in the final overall tally of party votes, as much as possible, the number of seats won by each party are in proportion to the total votes cast for it

c.   That otherwise voting within each ward or constituency remains the same FPTP system, or changes to an AV system as a part or the above overall change

d.  That the voting age be simultaneously revised to include all those over 16
