Most Creatively Spoilt Ballot Prize

For the disaffected
  (+3)
(+3)
  [vote for,
against]

Spoiling a ballot is one way of saying "None of the above".

What if it could mean something ?

During the count, spoilt ballots are set aside. The candidates and their representatives are permitted to inspect them and dispute the decision of the counters if required; in the case of recounts, these disputed ballots may decide the poll.

But we digress.*

If the spoilt ballot has artistic or humorous qualities, it can be considered for the Most Creatively Spoilt Ballot Prize for the constituency. Though the author retains anonymity - and thus relinquishes any rights to their product to the public domain - the winning item is displayed in the count room, and subsequently published on a website.

There could be a National Championship, too.

*However, we are assured that applying Rentisham's to the Affected Region will effect a near-miraculous cure.

       There is no situation that cannot be alleviated, ameliorated or rectified by the application of Rentisham's. Once the documents are made public, I shall reveal the role of Rentisham's in the de-escalation of the Cuban Missile crisis.

       Since when do slaves get wages ?

       Slaves have received wages in many cases throughout history. See also: Shanghaiing, prison labor, labor conscription, family court, military drafts, hue and cry laws, ancient Greece, modern Greece, McDonald's.

       There's also the Navy's notorious press gangs, and the Asian clothing and shoe industries.
