They stand a much better chance of getting seats with a Yes vote. To say that a vote for a system supported by the two main parties is a vote for the BNP is ridiculous.

      Less than 23 million people in the whole world use the AV system and Australia, who make up the vast majority of those, look ready to go back to the FPTP system very soon.
      I think AV could be a case of swings and roundabouts for the BNP. I'd expect them to get more votes under AV, and therefore be less likely to lose their deposits, which I guess would mean they'd be likely to field more candidates.

      But, on the other hand, if there was a BNP candidate standing here, with even a remote prospect of being elected, and we were voting under an AV system, I'd vote for all the other candidates on the ballot, to try to keep them out. A lot of people might choose to do that, which could reduce their prospects of being elected. And of course would be good news for the Abbadabado party

      On the other hand under the current system, if they were the leading candidate, the obvious reaction is to vote for whoever was expected to come second anyway, so maybe it won't make much difference.

      If you dont fill in the Census you get fined. But it's totally acceptable not to vote (remember when you vote you can just 'spoil' the voting paper).
      And I cant believe I'm actually agreeing that its a good point.

      However, you can fill in the census, tax & insure your car, etc etc etc online so why cant you vote online ?

      Online voting would cater for the vast majority and those that arn't catered for could do it by post ( like the census ) and I'm sure would see a better return especially if made compulsory.

      I'm sure this would also save millions across the country by not having to open schools etc and staff them with Council workers on special payments, thats if there are any Council workers left.

      Re: Yes or No

      yea voting online is quite a good idea actually like if they setup some website where you pick your fav party and it gets put through the voting system just like you would going to a polling station and putting a x on the party you want

      Re: Yes or No

      Postal Voting has been possible for many years already.

      On-Line voting has been used in this country in some areas already.

      Personally speaking, I would distrust on-line voting as identity theft is too common and fingerprint scanners (or something similar) would be a good way to ensure the authenticity of the voter, but even this could be hacked.

      The postal voting system is susceptible to fraud too.

      I've gone postal myself!

      They could make an online voting system reasonably secure, by requiring you to enter a unique code that they would print on the voting card that they post to you. They'd also need a check to deal with interception of the voting card in the post; if they required you to provide your mobile phone number when you pre-register for an online vote, then they could text you a second code when you've placed your vote, to enter on the voting site to confirm it is you.

      In fairness, even voting in person has it's flaws I guess.

      Someone could easily impersonate you.

      There is no stupidity in impersonating someone else if you intend to defraud someone of something. This sadly happens all too often an is one reason why someone hacked into the Play Station Network to get all those personal details.

      It is wrong and only serves to harm others, but it happens all too often where there is something to gain.
