LETTER: ‘No to AV’ leaflet is inaccurate

Share this article

The “No to AV” leaflet delivered last week contains a blatant inaccuracy.

Athletes are depicted reaching the tape at more or less the same time.

On their chests are numbers which apparently relate to election votes.

The one with fewest is declared to be ‘the winner under AV’. But under AV he would be eliminated and the second choices made by his supporters distributed to the others. One of them would then be the winner.

If the No to AV camp don’t understand the system they are against, their opinion doesn’t count for much. Apparently, according to a lady at the Electoral Commission, no one is responsible for vetting what is being put out in this campaign.

Doesn’t seem very satisfactory to me!
