An email to Lib Dem members, signed by Jo Swinson, is promoting the Lib Dem rally taking place on Saturday evening, with some high-profile guest speakers, as the party gears up for next May’s referendum:

On Saturday, join Nick Clegg, Art Malik, Martin Bell, some surprise special guests and myself as we launch our campaign for a fairer voting system.

As you know , Nick Clegg is leading the fight in Parliament to secure the United Kingdom its first ever referendum on electoral reform.

Fighting for fairer votes will be one of the top priorities for the Liberal Democrats this coming year – it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to overhaul our failed electoral system.

That’s why we’re devoting the first evening of our Party Conference in Liverpool to a Rally for Fairer Votes, in association with the Electoral Reform Society.

We’ll be putting the case for Fairer Votes for Britain – with a bit of fun, glitz and glamour along the way!

If you ‘re at Conference, come along to ACC Auditorium at 6.30pm on Saturday. A Conference photo-pass will be required for entry.

If you can’t join us in Liverpool there will be highlights posted to over the next few days.

You can also now download campaign materials and find out more about the Fairer Votes Referendum. Just visit

We need to start the work now – convincing friends, family, colleagues and neighbours to vote yes in the referendum.

See you on Saturday,

Jo Swinson MP
