In all elections, regardless of the number of candidates, on your ballot you will be able to vote for the candidate of your choice or RON (Re-Open Nominations). Alternatively you can submit your vote without selecting one of the radio buttons, which simulates a spoilt ballot.
If you are already a nominated candidate, or would like to put questions to the candidates, then make use of our forum threads and discord channels.
Use this time wisely to show what you could bring to the Pirate Party UK's Leadership, or if you are undecided on who to vote for, find out a little bit more about your candidates.
