I voted because I think we all have a duty to vote, people lost their lives in the 19th century and early 20th fighting to get the vote for the common man. There are people in countries around the world who would love to be able to vote but can not and yet we can vote in this country but people choose not to. Even if it just means spoiling your ballot paper to register your opinion/vote then do it

I remember a staunch Liberal the late Jack Rushton who lived on Bishops Walk, he always went to vote even if there wasn't a Liberal candidate, as when he got to the polling station under then names of the Labour and Conservative candidate he made out his own box with the word 'Liberal', put a cross at the side and put into the ballot box, he registered his vote even though he spoilt the ballot paper in doing so

I agree!

Then again... it is also everyone's democratic right to choose not to vote.

I think in this case, people voted by not voting! This is the first time I've not used my right to vote by putting my X in a box. A trip to the polling station for me would have been purely hypocritacal in this case, as I'd no idea what, or who, I was supposed to be voting for. I blame apathy, on the part of the candidates. If one of them had bothered to campaign, I'm sure they'd have got in, given the amount of non voters who, like me, hadn't a clue. :roll:

Yes people have fought and sacrificed for our democratic right (our ability to vote). So tell me this, what was democratic about tacking away a democratic police authority and inflicting a Police and Crime commissioners upon us?

I think your preaching about democratic duty (duty to vote) should not be aimed at those that did not vote, more those in government that dictated this policy without any consultation or hint of a democratic process.
