A couple of petitions to the Government that people who read this might be interested in signing:
Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Nov 15th elections : My vote was a “No” vote – I plugged this a lot during the week on social media, and it’s a very good way of making clear that people object to the concept of police commissioners, and the low turnout last week wasn’t just apathy.
Add legally binding ‘Reopen nominations (RON)’ & ‘Leave position vacant’ options to all ballot papers – It would be an interesting addition to voting, and give people who don’t like any of the candidates an option to choose beyond spoiling or abstaining. Personally, I’d go for None Of The Above, rather than Re-Open Nominations. From personal experience running elections at Essex SU, many people didn’t understand ‘re=open nominations’, but ‘none of the above’ makes a lot more sense to people.
And an old petition that you can still sign and I think deserves support: put Alan Turing on the £10 note.
