Are you a citizen of the United Kingdom? Do you want to have a meaningful say on how the United Kingdom is governed? Do you want to have more choice at general elections, and do you want your vote to count? The United Kingdom uses the first-past-the-post voting system for its general elections, and The Snap Election Plan argues why this is undermining the United Kingdom's democracy. The relatively few people who benefit from the system are the very ones who have the power to change it. This creates a vicious cycle, and means that, election after election, first past the post becomes further and further entrenched. But there is a way to break into the cycle.
