Colour Rating:
Most aspects to our General Elections (Parliament) are good. There are problems with postal voting. On-demand postal voting ballots are allowed without a strict reason for them. We have a strong tradition of voting in-person in General Elections, so postal vote numbers are relatively low (under 20%).

What can be done if free and fair elections are denied to us?

Do you feel your elections are transparent and fair? If not then you might want to withhold tax as leverage. Then you could potentially adapt our websites open source code into a useful tax rebellion leveraging tool. Any successful and reasonable objective-driven tax rebellion should include a clear red-line demand, with a set time frame, and with a forceful determination over a very wide consensus.
