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.
