Current trends suggest that people like choice and this applies to democracy as much as anything else. To maximise voting turnout and engage as many people as possible in democracy a future democracy would look to have a large number of different candidates/parties for voters to choose from. As populations get increasingly more transient and people interact less with the local communities in which they live electoral areas should get larger and be elected on a more proportional system (for example there could be 15 MPs representing the whole of South Yorkshire elected by proportional representation within that region). Candidates and political parties would need to communicate with voters to set out their policies using social media and other methods more. In our current electoral system voters can vote either in person at a polling station, by post or by proxy. In 15-20 years time online voting will need to be an option. However, the more choice of voting methods that are in place the more expensive the system is and the more it is open to fraud. Therefore I think that over time online voting should be introduced so that for the week before polling day voters can register and vote online but that period should close the day before polling day so that all polling stations can be issued with a register of everyone who is still to vote and they can vote at their polling station on polling day itself. Postal voting should be phased out after the introduction of online voting. Consideration should also be given in the planning of new housing developments to ensure that every area has a building that can be used as a polling station. Many families take their children to the polling station when they vote and those children when they grow up do the same. The polling station is a fixture of British democracy but community buildings are becoming increasingly scarce and with the traditional British polling day being on the first Thursday in May this is the week before SATS exams and schools are increasingly unwilling to close on this day.
