The deadline for registering to vote in the AV referendum (and local elections happening in some places is Thursday. So if you’ve recently moved house or think you aren’t registered, get your skates on and speak to your council’s electoral registration office.
Lots of people are confused about what AV is, and what the arguments for and against are. We’ve added some pages to the site this morning to provide information and links on the issue as we see it:
- AV Referendum basics explains what the referendum is, what will happen if it passes, and how AV works
- AV Pros, Cons and Nons picks out what we think are the three best arguments for and against each voting system, and also a few non-arguments – claims from both campaigns that we think are irrelevant or misleading.
- Finally, our AV Reading List will be updated between now and the big day with content we find around the web that sheds light on the issue. Partisan name-calling won’t feature.
If we’ve missed anything, or you disagree with what we’ve said, you can comment here or on the pages themselves.
