Two weeks ago we announced how you could get involved in the preparations for May. These processes are still ongoing, and your input is still valued.
Party Vote on AV
From Monday, we intend to open to the members a vote on endorsing AV in the upcoming referendum on changing the voting system in the UK. The vote will run for about a week, with results published shortly thereafter. You will be informed when voting has opened.
For more information about the electoral systems, and the referendum, and to debate the issue, see the thread 'PPUK and the AV Referendum' - http://www.pirateparty.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=2755
Member Consultation On Our Constitution
The consultation on amendments to the party constitution is still open for your comments, suggestions, and questions.
After the consultation, the Board will review the amendments, taking your input into account, and then present the finalised amendments to you for ratification.

Today marks exactly 6 months until the devolved and local elections, and the referendum on AV. Between now and then, we as a party must do a lot of work to prepare. Work has already been going on behind the scenes with the Executive Committee and Board of Governors handling the administration and formalities of running the party, but as a democratic party we need your input on several matters.
