Good local government depends on decent local democracy. But many of us are now living in Rotten Boroughs - unaccountable and unresponsive, where our votes don't make a difference.

It doesn't have to be this way.

You can help us win the argument for fair votes in England and Wales. Have you been let down by local democracy? Do you live in a Rotten Borough?
