  • If we’re to get an actual ballot paper AND an online one, what’s to stop people voting twice? (I’m sure this has been thought of, I’m just curious what the answer is).

  • I think postal ballot papers only go to people for whom the party does not have email addresses or who have asked not to be contacted by email.

    That’s right @margaret. The default is online.

    We do not have an unwritten constitution, merely an uncodified one. It seems to me that it functions appropriately.
