It is taking place in Truro from 5pm on Tuesday 25th September at The Railway Tavern, near the train station. Please come along to the meeting, hear what Sarah has to say, and tell her you want fair votes!

The meeting will have even more impact if you are able to join it. Please let Cath of Make Votes Matter Cornwall know if you can come:

With thousands of us telling our MPs face-to-face that we want fair votes, we can create a tidal wave of public pressure and make a key political demand. But we can't do it without you!
