RFB: Greenspeak: 'Making Our Votes Count: Reforming the UK Electoral System'

There has been much discussion about electoral reform following the General Election this May. But what are the alternatives to our current First Past the Post system and how could they be achieved? What are the pros and cons of models such as Proportional Representation, Single Transferable Vote or Alternative Vote Plus?

Speaker Dan Jellinek will talk about reforming our national elections and the House of Lords and how devolution might affect democratic reform.

Dan is a journalist, trainer, publisher and author of the book “People Power: A User’s Guide to Democracy in the UK”

The talk will be followed by questions and answers and a general discussion.

The event has been organised by Free University Brighton and Greenspeak.
