Proportional Representation is Real Democracy

Make Votes Matter is the movement for Proportional Representation

Our broken voting system cheats most voters. The country is in crisis and a general election can’t fix it. Instead, we will get another Parliament that doesn’t reflect the way people voted.

We urgently need to make seats match votes, with a good voting system, chosen by the people. Most people and parties agree. Join us.


Make Votes Matter believes the House of Commons should be elected by Proportional Representation - so seats in Parliament match how the people vote - and that every vote should count, regardless of where you live or who you vote for. We invite you to support the movement for Proportional Representation so we can win real democracy in the UK.
