You all have a choice today for more of the same or change now its up to you don't forget you get what you vote for

Well now it's up to you what happens tomorrow do you want more of the same or a complete change Welsh labour has clung on to power over the years with the help of the Welsh Liberal Democrats and Plaid Cymru and now apparently Plaid Cymru has already sad they will go into a coalition with Labour after the election, so do Plaid want to keep labour in power? If you vote for Plaid Cymru are you actually voting to keep labour? Don’t waste your regional vote think outside the box for a change Regional MembersThe five regions are North Wales, Mid and West Wales, South Wales West, South Wales Central, South Wales East. Each has four seats.The 20 regional Members are elected using the Additional Member System. The Additional Member System helps the final make-up of the Senedd better reflect the support for each party across the country.How does the regional system work?Here's how the regional system works:
  • each party or group in a region presents a list of candidates;
  • electors vote for the person they want to represent their region;
  • the votes for the regions are usually counted after the constituency votes have been decided;
  • each party’s total is divided by 1 + the number of Members of the Senedd it already has in that region;
  • the party with the highest total after this calculation gets the next seat and the person on top of its list is elected;
  • the same pattern is repeated until all four regional seats have been decided.
