Mark Chapman is the Pirate Party’s PPC for Vauxhall in the upcoming general election. Over the coming weeks we need to raise awareness with just under 76,000 electors about who we are and why they should vote for Mark.
We need your help!
It doesn’t matter where you are, or how much or how little time you have, there are ways to help.
Elections are old-fashioned affairs carried out in arguably tired traditional ways – but that doesn’t have to be the case for us. We all have a voice online, some louder than others, but every voice counts.
You can follow us on facebook (national page, London and South East page), on twitter (national, london), and on Google+ (national, London and South East) and you can like, share, retweet, +1, etc. our messages.
We’d like to encourage you to do more than this.
When you find public conversations online from those in constituencies we’re contesting, or on policy areas which are important to the Pirate Party’s principles (no matter where they are taking place), or by anyone confused or disinterested in their choice at this election we would like you to get involved.
Let people know what Pirate Party stands for, share our principles and our policies and encourage those who cannot vote for us this time to join and start their own local branch so they might vote for us next time.
During the EU elections last year we produced a lot of material which really helped promote what we stand for. If you are creative and can help produce similar material for us – get in touch with our campaigns team at email@example.com.
Elections, sadly, cost money. If you are able to, please donate as much or as little as you can. £5 pays for our phone lines during an election campaign, £50 buys us 1,500 election leaflets to deliver, and £500 funds the deposit for a single candidate. When donating please add ‘for Mark in London’ to the order comments box. We accept paypal, bank transfers, cheques, money orders, and even bitcoin!
If you believe in what we campaign for you may also wish to encourage friends and family to donate. Even if they don’t you can help spread awareness of us.
No matter how ‘traditional’ it might be, the best way to reach every one of the nearly 76,000 voters is on their doorstep. Mark already has a small team of campaign staff so that he doesn’t need to visit every doorstep himself – however the more volunteers that help us the fewer letterboxes we each need to fight with.
If you are available to spend a few hours of your time posting leaflets through doors please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We currently plan to be leafleting in the evenings on workdays and daytimes on the weekends.
If you can come to just one session, or want to go wild and attend them all, just get in touch and let us know.
