I dropped off my referendum ballot on voting reform today.  I voted to change tp a more proportional system.

I didnít. I have a real problem with the way this is being done. If there is only a 50% response you could get as low as 26% of the electorate deciding to change the way we vote. If that 26% is split evenly between the three options, you could have as few as 9% deciding how we vote in future. This is a dishonest and unrepresentative way of forcing change from a bunch that says how we vote now isnít representative. As a result, I voted for the status quo. For the record, I voted for STV in the last two reforendums so I am not against change.
