CAMPAIGNERS braved the cold last Saturday in the Magnolia Centre to make the case to change the voting system.

Devon Says: Yes! To Fairer Votes, want to see an overhaul of the voting system ahead of the planned referendum on May 5.

Just one in three MPs command the support of half of the voters and campaigners wants to swap to the alternative to the vote system so MPs would need to poll at least 50 per cent to get elected.

A spokesperson said: “We will represent the supporters of all parties and none. We will make the case for a democracy where everyone’s vote matters.”
