On Saturday 50 phonebanks are opening in cities across the country as the Yes to Fairer Votes campaign launches the most ambitious voter contact programme in British political history.
The total capacity of the 50 phonebanks is set to exceed that of even the Conservative and Labour Party national phonebanks at their peaks, with volunteers phoning voters to persuade them to back a fairer voting system in next May’s referendum.
In addition to the phonebanks, a virtual phonebank will be launched in the new year letting people also take part from the convenience of their own homes.
The phone campaign will be drawing on the 140,000 people who have already signed up to help the campaign and aims to speak to more voters than all the British political parties managed between them in the run-up to this May.

The other telephone operation which many Liberal Democrats are already helping with is for Elwyn Watkins’s campaign in Oldham East & Saddleworth. If you would like to do some calling to help his election contact his campaign team.
