I decided to make up my mind today, Referendum Day!
I read the Electoral Commission booklet and am satisfied that AV is pretty simple to understand, if expensive to administer!
I read the Daily Mail which presented only a 'NO' vote argument from David Cameron.
Then I read this material about how AV actually works in Australia and that decided me on a 'YES' vote!
Thank you very much for this help!
I now believe AV, on an 'optional preferential' basis, will be a step in the right direction towards a more accountable and balanced/centred political future for the U.K.
