2017 WA State Election Candidates

Flux Senators serve to protect the integrity of Flux.

Being a Flux Representative is not like being any other elected representative. Flux Representatives respect Flux as a method for decision making more than they respect their own opinions. If elected, this may mean casting a vote in parliament contrary to their personal beliefs.

All our Flux candidates have made a public declaration stating that they will act as a proxy for the Flux system and that they won't use their status for personal gain (including personal policy agenda).
