How can we better simulate elections for you to enjoy?

When there's been National, Regional and Constituency-level campaigning options, a lack of clarity has lead to people incorrectly prioritising, so clarity on the relative importance would be good

I think it should be simplified to a priority for regional events with a couple of big national events (PPBs, Manifesto Launches, etc.).

I think the 2017-2018 system worked about fine. There's a problem there though seeing that that particular election was fought under AV+ and thus the priority of a targetted constituency campaign was sort of diminished already.

A comment on leadership elections: I like the new system; it's a lot of work but it's good fun - with regards to the campaign period, I like this new organisation thing, I just wish it did what it said on the tin. Turnout dynamics are important and the level of organisation has a massive effect on that, not just event quality etc. I realise it would be more work for the admins but it would be a realistic simulation of the leadership elections, which is something I think we've made a brilliant step towards with this system already. I can probably add more detail once we see the results of the two leadership elections

I’m in the process of getting Telegram back up. Have the results been posted somewhere I can’t see?
