1, 2, 3, 4, 5 in the ballot – and second preference drawn

6 Nov

Michael from Fairer Votes Belfast putting out the campaign leaflets.

A successful evening was had at the first Fairer Votes Belfast event at the North Down and Strangford Alliance Associations’ Table Quiz at the CIYMS Clubhouse in East Belfast. We’ve signed up some volunteers. Although the Fairer Votes Belfast team didn’t come first in the quiz, we didn’t come last either.

Stephen, the campaign manager, did have ballot tickets 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, and on the second draw out came number 1. So that seems like a good result for our team.

Every table had a few leaflets for our campaign and between two round Stephen addressed the assembled throng. We even had debate with the Green Party in Northern Ireland‘s MLA, Brian Wilson, who was there with his wife Cllr Anne Wilson.

Alliance MLAs Stephen Farry (North Down) and Kieran McCarthy (Strangford) signed up for their support.

We look forward to working with all our supporters in Alliance in the coming months as we work to get Northern Ireland to say

Yes to Fairer Votes on May 5th.
