    I'd prefer if it was PR, but AV is the next best thing, so I'd vote yes if I could. Though they're just avoiding the more important referendum that they should be having - a referendum on Britain's membership in the EU.

    The coalition will be gone in 4 years (hopefully less). If this referendum fails, we'll be stuck with FPTP for god knows how many multiples of 4 years. People should at least have the responsibility to vote on the issue at hand.
    lol

    The only people who will benefit from this style of voting are the socialists/commie wannabes who pander to the EU.

    The coalition will be a starter course compared to what lies ahead with this Av system. I can only imagine the failocrats and greenparty with a big chunk of the stupid votes a lot of people seem to give out these days.

    Tories will be better for this country and thats final.

    I can't vote... but my dad is giving me his vote as he lives abroad but has a UK address and says that as UK laws don't really affect him so doesn't feel he should vote. He knows how into politics I am and how well i've researched the AV topic..... so he's doing what I want to vote as he thinks that despite my age I deserve one because I know more about what's going on that some people who are voting.

    and I'm voting YES!
    I wanted to neg-rep you because you're a supporter of the "Alternative Vote", but the fact that you're so interested in politics at such a young age is incredibly rare, to say at the least.

    I wish there were more people like you.

    AV probably won't lead to many more seats for small parties.

    And if it does, that's because people voted for them. It's called democracy.

    I'm using it as an example as I was wondering how the new voting system would work.

    I am voting yes because Cameron sounds like a man scared of everything going wrong if we say no. He is practically begging and is offering us no decent reason why. Why does he care if parties such as the BNP benefit. It is not like they are going to win the election. He should worry about his own party and his own reasons behind being against AV. It really annoys me.

    YES YES YES (even though i cant vote yet). Heard on question time yesterday that apparently people are voting no to AV because its not PR. Why not use it as a stepping stone?

    Oh I am sure democracy is living well.

    Similar to the iraq and afghnaistan democracy I bet!

    Why assume it's a stepping stone? I certainly don't see it as such, especially given the countries which have AV have been AV for a very long time and look unlikely to take on PR.

    because it's a sidewards step not a forward step.
