Bracknell's new MP?

See http://www.bracknellconservatives.com/primary.php where more details will be available soon.

The Primary method of selection was piloted in the 2001 - 2005
Parliament. Constituencies that selected using the Primary method
include Reading East and Warrington South.


As I understand it, voting at the event will be by secret ballot, and it will be necessary for the successful applicant to achieve over 50% of the votes cast, excluding abstentions. Therefore, if this is not achieved in the first round the applicant with the fewest votes would be eliminated and the meeting would proceed to a further ballot until an overall majority for one applicant is achieved.

You do not have to be a member of the Conservative Party. To be eligible to attend and vote at this meeting you just need to pre-register. Full details will be available on the Bracknell Conservatives Website.
