The Alternative Vote (AV) Referendum
As well as voting for local candidates you will be able to vote in a UK-wide referendum (the first since 1975), where voters are being asked whether they want to keep the current “first-past-the-post” system for electing MPs or switch to the “Alternative Vote (AV)” system. Find out what the Alternative Vote (AV) is on the BBC News website.
