    does any one remember the exact wording of the 25 marker for participation and voting behaviour please?
    I think it was should voting in Elections be one way (or the only way) to measure participation.

    The unit 1 25 marker:

    1. Voting is the only way of measuring political participation.

    1st point- I wrote about voting - Turnouts, legitimacy of govt etc

    2nd point - party membership - lots of party stats

    3rd point - pressure group activity

    4th point- protest movement

    I ran out of time to write a conclusion but I made good links to participation.

    So disappointed I ran out of time.. I completely forgot about evaluating on the 25 markers. Does anyone know if evaluation can simply be a paragraph of a contrasting point to the question?? Or does it have to be evaluating each point at the end of the paragraph

    The unit 2 25 marker was really good

    Ams over FPTP

    I talked about Ams in increased voter choice instead of FPTP safe seats etc

    I talked about FPTP allowing tactical voting

    Disproportionality of FPTP

    Ams more opportunities for minorities

    Ams reduces safe seats

    Coalition of Ams despite two coalitions and a two minority governments

    Concluding with saying how turnout in Scottish assembly, where it's used is at around 40% 2016 election so turnout would reduce which undermines legitimacy

    Ahh yes the UKIP examples. Well I put that by election constituencies come under fire from heavy campaigning that isn't seen at a general election because they're the centre of attention, and in the case of Clacton and Rochester & Strood Farage made a number of personal visits and may have appealed to the anti-politics supporters disillusioned with the Con-LD govt. It was unpredictable because of this unusual campaigning.

    Also the turnouts were crap (28.2% in Wythenshawe / Sale East) which is far below general election average so it means a larger proportion didn't turn out and they could swing it in a general

    For participation I distinguished between formal and informal, talked about falling party membership in one paragraph, voting in another and also did online participation through social media, online campaigns and e-petitions.
    I talked about electoral and non-electoral.

    My first point was about how the people protest vote against the government through by elections. Conservatives defecting to UKIP

    My second point was that how members from their own party turned against their own party. The defection example again

    I forgot the bloody definition though 😔

    Also for referendums undermining representative democracy.

    1st point was that it's a tool of direct democracy- clement atlee blah blah

    2nd point was that the public decide on matters that we elect people to do
    E.g Harold Wilson eec membership

    Conclusion - refernda have low turnouts- undermine legitimacy blah blah


    What do people think I'd get, please help a sister out haha

    I dnt know if I got full marks but first I said is that by election are volatile as because of protest votes as people who usually vote for a certain party in GE don't in by elections due to regency factors like unpopular policy's and dissatisfaction I gave an example of the proposal of tax cuts in 2015 ect but those who usually win over cumbent party in by elections dnt in GE gave an example of UKIP only winning 1 seat.
    Second point I have was tactical voting. I spoke about tactical voting and mass media as people sometimes vote in order to keep their gov in power gave example of election of Jeremy Corby where MPs in the cons side were ask snog they pod their £3 and spoke about how mass media was influential in recencyfactors
