None of the Above

None of the Above

Dear Minister,

please will you introduce a short Act of Parliament to permit voters a "None of the Above" option on electoral ballot papers?

Why is this important?

With record low turnout for elections, the democratic mandates of our governments and local councils are seriously undermined. It could be argued that the majority of the public is already voting for "None of the Above". The public is currently unable to exercise any choice over the individual candidates put up by each party, but permitting them to reject the listed candidates in an election would allow a new set to be put up.

Reasons for signing

  • Our current democracy simply does not work, this seems like a good option
  • end the two-party jobs-for-the-boys carve-up
  • only by getting rid of the failed LibLabCon Party Europhiles will true democracy occur
