Young Liberals elections have been a bit tricky recently. From issues arranging hustings, the length of the voting period, to release of results - we've got a lot of work to do to improve our election process.
One of our executive officers, Cat, is forming a working group to investigate if any changes should be made to the current election style and timetable. And applications are open to join the group!
The working group aims to:
- Gather feedback from both candidates and the electorate on the current timetable
- Produce alternative timetable options
- Review hustings viability
- Investigate other communication channels between candidates and the electorate
- Devise how to make elections easier for first time candidates
- Investigate the idea of rules for candidates and what they should be
- Produce a report and give a recommendation to the executive
We're looking for a diverse range of members to join this working group. The number of group members will be kept to 10 or under, who will preferably have a mix of backgrounds, geographical locations and diversities.
You don't need any experience, just enthusiasm and an interest in how YL runs our elections.
