    Birchington one of the graphs is not showing for me, the make-up of the House one.

    One of the graphs isn't working for me to let you know @Birchington.

    As for the turnout, maybe a longer campaign? Or a more advertised election campaign? I don't recall the manifestos being in the mass PM, maybe each party could have a line or two in the mass PM to advertise where they stand as a TSR party not a RL party?

    I have checked image links - all should appear correctly now.

    Looking at it, the number of votes was still rising when we closed the poll. Maybe we could experiment with shutting it 7 days after the mass PM?

    Could you (or anyone!) do me a massive favour and give me the numerical figure for Green and Socialist seats at each stage? I'm red-green colourblind and very much struggling to tell them apart on the graphic

    Day 3: Grn:5 Soc:4
    Day 4: Grn:4 soc:4
    Day 5: Grn:4 soc:3

    Which is where it stuck.

    Rats, we were crushing you all before the mass PM.

    I'd be heavily against extending the election period, 10 days just drags and we can't really control how long HQ takes.

    Personally I'm not actually against low turnouts, there's a much higher chance it was based on the Mhoc and not RL.

    **** the mass PM.

    At least we know that we have the most willing latent membership and that the Conservatives are the leading force around here and that's good enough for me.

    I thank Mr Speaker for his analysis and concur with the speculation that the EU referendum may have affected GE turnout.

    Very impressive result for the Liberals. Well done to all.

    No surprise that the mass PM favoured Labour, most of the forum are rabid lefties, so telling them that it's happening will naturally cause such a swing.

    Another conclusion that could be drawn is that Tory suporters are more interested in MHoC, or at least happened to be on more in the early hours of the morning where it will be more visible in latest discussion.

    It shouldn't have been a problem really as the election should've been held as soon as the second coalition fell (unless I've missed something)

    I was surprised that given the precedents of recent elections the polling period wasn't extended beyond seven days (unless I've missed something there as well)

    A suggestion might be to set a five day threshold e.g 250-300 votes. If by five days the threshold hasn't been passed then the poll is extended to ten days.

    And regarding the referendum. We have in the constitution the provision for the speaker to extend parliament. Perhaps if a referendum occurs within a month of a general election then the general election is delayed so that the referendum occurs more than a month before the election

    The GE happened directly after the referendum. It was at the demand of the house because the GE wasn't ment to happen until 3 weeks time. A threshold might be a good idea but it really depends on when the CT decide to send out the mass PM.
