PR and the Labour Party.png

To make Proportional Representation for the House of Commons a reality, it will almost definitely need the support of one of the two biggest parties. Make Votes Matter works closely with Labour members to help persuade the party to commit to PR.

The arguments for Labour to back PR are overwhelming. A vast majority of Labour voters support a fair, proportional voting system. Our task is to enable the debate so that this position comes to be reflected by Labour's official policy.

To find out why PR is in the interests of Labour MPs, activists and voters read our report, jointly written with the Labour Campaign for Electoral Reform: The Many Not The Few: Proportional Representation & Labour in the 21st Century.

If you're a Labour member, invite a speaker to your local branch, Constituency Labour Party or affiliate to start the debate and consider passing a motion calling on the party to back PR as policy. We have Labour-affiliated speakers all over the UK who would be happy to accept the invitation and a draft motion that you can put forward to your branch or CLP.
