Nominations Period is now open for NEC internal elections!

Ahoy fellow Pirates!

As of 22:00 today the Nominations period will commence for elections to the Pirate Party UK NEC. Nominations will close 10th November at 22:00, which will also be the start of the Campaign period.

If you'd like to take part and put yourself forward as a candidate, then take a look at the description of the NEC and the specific roles in the NEC Code of Practice and look for what you need to do here.

Most importantly, make sure you are a paid up member and have another party member in good standing who wants to second your application. If you want to vote, or stand yourself, you won't be able to unless your subscription is up to date.

The best way to gain support is to build your profile. In order to stand a good chance of being a candidate and hopefully getting elected, talk on your blog, join the conversation in our discord server and generally be active, nationally, virtually, or locally!

As our current Nominating Officer plans to be a candidate in this election, I will be running the election from here on, having already resigned from the NEC to avoid any COI.

Best of luck to all.

Yours piratically

David A Elston
Pirate Party Acting Nominations Officer
