Good results.

I was appalled at the national and local turnout. I think if this had been higher the results would have been better for GP.

I have only missed voting twice in 35 years (both good reasons) in both local and national elections.
We seem to be in a horrible situation at present where ‘whinge / ignore / not do anything’ has become the national culture.

Sheffield is a university city for goodness sake!
Surely our university population should see voting as an obligation of their privilege?

How do we get people to vote?

I don’t have the definitive answers to that but we all need to address it before the next elections.
