Just a reminder: make sure that you cast your ballot in the Presidential election

We're very fortunate in the Liberal Democrats. We get to vote for the people who represent us at all levels of the Party and whilst the system may not be perfect, it reflects our world view that those in authority should be democratically accountable for their actions.

And yet, we don't really use our hard won freedoms. Turnout in the last election for the Party Presidency in 2004 was just 47%. I've known PPC selections where just two members voted and again, in most cases, turnout is usually less than 50% of the membership.

So, regardless of how you're intending to vote, please make sure that you send your ballot back - the deadline is Friday, November 7th...
