What you can do to help improve the local electoral system

Send us an email that you want to join us. Participation and membership are always free.

You can also ask your Elections Commission outright to have the local electoral system changed to one that is based on proportionality. Just follow the example ordinary San Francisco citizens provided. By asking, you can find out if proportional elections are available to you right now.

There are two levels of organization to LocalParty.Org: the Org itself, and the various Local Parties. Yet there are three levels in total for you to join our movement and help create change: two on the inside, one on the outside, already mentioned above.

First, Local Parties are set up by you. Contact LocalParty.Org about setting up or joining a Local Party. If no Local Party exists in your city or county, the Org is here to help you set up your independent Local Party. We contact you as soon as a few people have contacted us from a city or county, so we may be waiting for just one more person — like you — to set up a Local Party. Of course you'll receive a reply with further details; questions are always welcome, too. Have your name placed on our Email list, and make sure to include your city, county and state in the email, to receive our updates on the Local Party developments in your county.

Secondly, the Org is always on the lookout for specialists in marketing and people interested in political strategy. Also, legal advisors and webmasters are welcome. Contact us if you want to join the Org. We are a pro-volunteer web-based organization, with volunteering professionals at hand to support the needs of Local Parties. Be part of the movement by sending the Org an email with your specialization.

And thirdly, you don't have to join anything to already join the conversation and help create change. You can simply do so by becoming a participant. Since promoting discussion and delivering education on political systems and options is one of the three goals of LocalParty.Org, you can become a participant today. All you need to do is speak up about the existence of different political systems, point to the shortcomings of our system that can be remedied, and every now and then (but not necessarily often) mention LocalParty.Org. Or, follow the example ordinary San Francisco citizens provided. Nevertheless, communication about our political reality is vital. You probably agree that a lot of people desire more political freedom, but that many follow this up with "that will most likely not happen in my life time." Help till this soil of negativity, and get the ground ready for a more fertile attitude towards change: together we can make the tulips of equal representation grow.

 

Requesting a LocalParty.Org-affiliation

Groups that already exist and that are active on the political front may consider applying for a LocalParty-affiliation. We welcome you — often as who you are. Your local experience and your local knowledge is vital in making democracy work. Possibly you are a political watchdog organization, or a grassroots organization trying to influence the political platform in place, or a discussion group ready to take it one step higher.

Contact us and become part of our movement for empowering change.
