Every electoral method has intrinsic problems, and supporters of the loser in any democratic process can argue that their votes count for nothing. Just because your vote is less likely to swing your constituency doesn't mean it wasn't counted or was worthless. Everybody has one vote and each is counted.

If switching away from FPTP is your preference, vote Liberal Democrat. Their winning a large % of the national vote will strengthen their case for electoral reform
