EXPLANATION OF IDEA
The section of the society in which voting attendance is lowest is also the section of society who play the lottery the most.
To encourage the public to vote we therefore suggest we use the same strategy the Government introduced in the mid 1990’s in a bid to encourage us to give more money to charity and to pay for the arts. We encourage people to gamble.
Each Voting ballot form is actually a FREE to enter lottery form. You cross the boxes against the parties in the order of your preference and then put into the voting machine.
The machine counts your vote and then prints out a little voting ticket which is not only a record of your vote but also your ticket in the great National Vottery.
If the order you chose when you placed your vote is the order in which the parties turn out at the end then you get a share in a Vottery prize fund of £10 million pounds.
