Interactive Democracy by Post Code

An electronic electoral roll should include postcodes to enable the same Interactive Democratic system to be used by local governments, councils and parishes.

On some national issues the majority in one region may be different to another and parliament would need to decide if the new law should apply to everyone or to allow regional differences. This may be a thorny issue in some cases: for example, I imagine the votes for a ban on fox hunting to have been very different in rural counties compared to metropolitan centres.
