Die is Cast for 4 May Election

The ‘die is cast’ for tomorrow's elections – or it is as far as candidates are concerned as they can do no more to advance their causes (voters will be relieved).

Approximately half of all of the votes to be counted on Friday will have been cast over a week ago by post based upon 2013 behaviours.  Although only ~25% of the electorate vote by post ‘turnout’ is typically 85% (a national average) meaning that postal voters are particularly significant in deciding who gets elected.  Turnout amongst those who vote in person is usually around 25% - if it rose to 50% then the result really would be decided on polling day.  In 2013 Pz East was won with a margin of just 20 extra votes!   The message therefore is please vote - it is important who represents you locally in these uncertain times.
