What is an AV vote? :confused:
Presumably he means a referendum on the 'alternative vote' system. There was a real life referendum on this in 2011 but the British public pretty clearly decided that they did not want to change voting system.

I'm not sure what this would achieve in TSR. Anyone is free to start a poll in the politics forum and the MHoC do their own thing as far as I can tell. Really it should be on the OP to explain why they think such a move is necessarily or the admins will, rightly, disregard the thread as junk.

Referendum was garbage and wasn't even true AV. It was some middle-line *******isation that didn't appeal to people who didn't want AV and didn't appeal to people who did want AV.

Unfortunately that also means we'll likely never see another referendum. Oh well.

That wouldn't be very useful though. I think the point of the TSR poll is to reflect reality - using AV would give different results to FPTP and wouldn't be a useful microcosm for the country or even just the student demographic.

As I said before, the onus would be on you to justify the use of AV instead of FPTP rather than simply claim that 'we need' it.
