The dream of quorate elections and referenda
Writing about web page http://www.sunion.warwick.ac.uk/portal/voting
Hurrah, I've finally worked out how to blog, don't understand all these new fangled technologies….
Anyway, myself and my good friend John Cross (Returning Officer) talked about the idea of blogging the work we do for elections group (I am the chair I hasten to add) a few weeks ago, with a view to tidying it up and making it into a nice handy guide of how to run an election.
Anyway, I was so busy doing stuff for the elections that I didn't get round to making a blog, but since I'm now at home and have answered all my emails and should be doing some throughly uninteresting economics reading I've decided to start!
I will attempt at some point to log things I've done, but I've probably forgotten most of it to be honest.
Anyway, to the point of this blog. I have a dream….which is to run a quorate autumn elections and referenda (I'll confess this is rather an odd and short term dream but what the hey).
When I left uni today at 5pm it actually did look possible. I'm currently optimistic but not holding my hopes out too much. We need 2000 people to vote by Friday….. if you haven't voted go to the students' union website and get voting.
