If there are no suitable candidates standing in your constituency then use your vote to protest! Write on your ballot slip, REFERENDUM ON DEMAND! and DIRECT DEMOCRACY NOW! (More slogans below) Drop your ballot slip into the BOX. If enough people do this word will get around, other people will join in and perhaps some politicians will be persuaded to change their ways ;-). Future candidates will be more likely to support direct democracy reforms.
You can help to spread awareness of the need for more democracy and strengthen the Campaign and movement!
Ask your friends to join in! Use internet, mobiles etc., facebook, twitter and co. to spread this plan-of-action!
# Choose a symbol to wear or carry on Polling Day. See some suggestions here http://www.iniref.org/ (scroll down).
# Take a picture of your ballot paper after you have "improved" it with your protest. Maybe decorate the voting booth with a symbol of democracy or in some other creative way and photograph the result. Send the pictures to us and to your friends and contacts!
SLOGANS COULD BE:
CITIZENS' INITIATIVE AND REFERENDUM
INITIATIVE, REFERENDUM AND RECALL
REFERENDUM ON DEMAND
DIRECT DEMOCRACY NOW
