Enact is creating a new democratic system for the modern world.

Enacts new voting system is designed to fit seamlessly with existing Government policies and procedures. Once implemented the people determine and make a reality, the changes and laws they want. Thus we can make the political change our country needs that people are crying out for, without sacrificing the brilliant things our country already has.

The technology is at our fingertips to build a fully democratic system were you, the people can have direct control over how a town, county or country is run.

Enact UK believes that a population must trust its government and their working policies, however, trust in our parliamentary system is being broken down as those voted to represent have taken their selection as freedom to do as they please.

Change is needed; something bigger, something more fundamental than just a new government or a new political party that just re-starts the cycle but inevitably it breaks down again an again. Change is needed to enhance the ability for every person to express their opinions to listen and be heard. Change is needed to provide long term incremental progress and improvement.

This change would take the law-making powers, which are currently gifted by the people, to government and its MPs, away and by doing so, furnish the individual law maker.

How would votes be triggered?

The process will work using a series of votes with time for debates, information gathering and analysis. The time from initiation to starting the implementation would be around one year.

  1. A public petition receives 500k or more verified voter signatures.
  2. A government agency or public body wants to make material changes to their operational practices. If this would cost more or cause a change to services impacting the public then a vote will be called. This would work respectively on local and county levels.
  3. The Armed Forces trigger a vote if they need directions for defensive response (non critical) or to trigger action.
  4. Government can trigger a vote in an emergency situation.
How would the system work?

  • Six months for people, organizations or company's to send in costed and verified proposals.
  • Four months for proposals to be whittled down by voters up-voting there favorite.
  • One month debate on the top five options.
  • Public vote with voters listing the five options in preference order.
  • One month debate on the top two options.
  • Final vote between top two proposals.
  • Full implementation of chosen proposal.

How could this make things better?

  • Fundamentally, the voters chose and determine the laws.
  • No need for traditional political party's (meaning less social division).
  • The speedy implementation of law will better move in step with our fast-changing world. 
  • Traditional election cycle with short term targets eliminated.
  • No traditional government to keep upping spending for votes.
  • Reduction in influence of the media, elites and big business on policy.
  • Law changes can be monitored for performance and impact.
  • Works for any area size with voters included who are affected by the policy.
  • Reduces "knee jerk" policy changes based on high profile but rare events.
  • People in power often listen to the loudest cries of a few ignoring the general consensus.
  • With the election cycle removed votes should be more varied and interesting engaging a wider range of the population.
  • Politicians promise and agree on the campaign trail but once elected memories are short.
  • The public will have more involvement creating more engagement.

How could this make things worse?

  • Voters have no one to blame if a policy does not work (but they can change it again).
  • Votes will be more frequent (but more easily cast).
  • At the start there may be a backlog of things people want to change they will need to be worked threw gradually.

National (UK Wide) and Constituency (Local) Votes.

Law changes that affect the whole United Kingdom such as crime or taxes are voted on by all. However local votes can also be held to encompass a village or area. This allows people to choose the direction and tailor funding as needed. In a London borough that may be to attract business in the country side to attract tourists.

Getting Enact voted in.

  • Due to the way the voting system currently works Enact will field a candidate in each constituency as usual.
  • People who support will vote for an MP as normal.
  • The MP wont be offering any policy's only the introduction of Enact.
  • If enough MP's are voted in to form a government they will then implement the changes and the current system will end.
  • If not enough MP's are voted in Enact will not act as a normal government and would withdraw its MP's, in order to guard against this Enact will only field MP's candidates if / when it is near certain that Enact would win a majority.

Frequently Asked Questions.

Q:
I don't know anything about running a county can I / we be trusted with it?
A: The majority of MP's don't have any prior knowledge of the department they are assigned to. The transport sectary is not a transport expert and has no experience. Who knows more 650 MP's or 35 million voters. When it comes to voting we are all equal no matter who you are, what you know, or were your from and within that multitude are experts in everything you can imagine and then some.

Q: How will you tackle voter fraud?
A: We will use the latest technology from many sectors to make sure you are you, such as logging in for a vote will require 2/3 step verification and the system will monitor the number of voters in each area.

Q:
Who will run the country day to day?
A: The actual day to day will be done by the Civil Service and MP's along with the agencies and public body's that currently do.

Q: Won't having these votes cause more division?
A: The reason for having the five initial options being tapered down to two is to allow for more scope, options and discussion on the topic as a whole reducing the us vs them that is the current political and media story.

Q: I am not technologically savvy can I still vote like normal at the balled box?
A: We expect the majority to vote online using the usual devices, those that are unable will be able to get help from friend or relative. Some other options will be available perhaps voting terminals or someone to come round and help you.

Q: Look how difficult Brexit has been to implement won't Enact multiply this type of problem?
A: Unlike this or any other referendum Enact has no part of it's processes that can be hijacked by any one "side" or view, a chosen policy is implemented as the proposal is set out. If an MP or government worker breaches this contract then as with any normal job they would lose it.

Q: Not keen on reading endless proposals for a new laws do I have to?
A: Each will have a short summery breakdown to make this easier. Also proposals will we be sieved threw by journalists and pundits that will create articles and news items, podcasts, TV shows as well as those that do spend the time and pass on the information.

Q: Won't everyone just vote for zero tax?
A: Perhaps, each but law must be costed and verified. In this case, zero tax would require shutting down all public services.
