Explanation about how to vote

After reading the following links

and having decided internally in your pirate party what to vote, find in each scheduled voting down this page a link where to cast your pirate party's vote; remember also that only pirate parties representatives -enlisted in this section of Pirate Manifesto's main page- are allowed to cast votes for each pirate party.

Options for each voting

At least, each voting will have two options:

  • Option One: the original wording of one or several specific paragraphs.
  • Option Two: the wording proposed in one amendment.

This applies for non merged amendments. If we talk about an Amendment which results from merging others, the voting will have these other options:

  • Option One: the original wording of one or several specific paragraphs.
  • As many additional options as amendments have been merged in the Amendment to be voted.

Obviously, it is strongly recommended to read all the proposed options and place them within the context of the articles where the paragraphs to be amended belong, to be able to form oneself an opinion before casting a vote for any of the proposed votings.

Amendment to be voted

Fifteenth Amendment

Voting Options

OPTION ONE
About non-core issues
  • Having stances in every single issue does not make a party start caring about people's problems; instead, it just makes parties offer monolithic platforms in which most of their voters do not feel properly represented, as less represented as higher is the amount of votes for that party. Voters of mainstream parties just try to find themselves reflected in those platforms, only to discover that in controversial issues like tax policies, education, health care and others, they are not able to find all what they are looking for in a single party; monolithic platforms are just a mere take it or leave it approach.
  • For parties like those which are united in our movement, focusing on enabling and enhancing the foundations of democracy and the civil rights and liberties that rest within, securing the freedom for information and culture to flow, bringing the world into the Information Society, paving the way for innovation, is the best way to achieve our goals as such goals, goals for allowing citizens to choose the kind of society to live in, require us to be strong as a movement; because that strength comes from unity; and unity is usually brought in democracy by consenssus.
  • By achieving our goal, we will be allowing citizens to express themselves in those controversial issues, increasing chances of conssensus; and we will be paving the way for a true pluralism in parliaments, as opening the knowledge and information to citizens will allow individuals to choose the voice that best represents their interests, one of those voices being ours. Thus, supporting us constitutes the best way for citizens to achieve all those goals that lie outside our core issues.
