Anxiously hoping the Alternative Voting system gets enough support in the UK.
What is that?
The way the current British voting system works is each person gets one vote for one political party. It's not a very good system, as their are so many political parties here you can end up with a party in power which only 30% of the population voted for. That means 70% of the population gets a leader they do not want.
The alternative voting system is basically: You give as many political parties as you want a number. The party you want to win the most gets a "1", the one after that gets a "2" and so on.
In the end the party with the least votes get's knocked out of the race, if it was your number 1, your vote will go to your number 2. If your number 2 gets knocked out of the race your vote goes to your number 3 choice. And so on until we have a winner with more than 50% of the vote.
A comparison I liked that helped people understand it was it is basically just like The X Factor (Or American idol, or whatever). You have 12 potential singers that the public vote on each week, the one with the least votes gets sent home and the vote happens again the next week with the remaining 11 singers.
Basically the UK's current voting system is like the person with the most votes out of the 12 singers is the immediate winner, rather than narrowing down the contestants each week until you get a result which over half of the voters are happy with. It's not very good.
