The Liberal Democrat campaign for a fairer voting system will be launched at 6:30pm on Saturday night at Conference.

Join Nick Clegg, Art Malik, Martin Bell, Charles Kennedy and Jo Swinson in the ACC Auditorium at 6.30pm tonight. A Conference photo-pass will be required for entry.

Ahead of the event Jo Swinson said:

" 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!

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

Highlights of the rally will be posted to here over the next few days.
