    It’s bad news if you are not on the electoral register, however, it’s not difficult to check your status and make a correction. I understand that the turnout at this by-election from those on the register was only 27%. What does this mean? To me is says that people are generally disinterested in politics. Disinterest is an irresponsible trait because politics will continue anyway and those who did not vote really have no right to complain about the action (or inaction) of councillors, MPs and ministers. It is worth noting that voters in the young democracies of Africa and elsewhere will queue around the block and wait for hours to cast their vote and make their voice heard. What does that say about the electorate of South East Holderness who don’t have to walk miles every day for sufficient drinking water.

    • no wonder it was only a 26.9% turnout. To be honest I am suprised it was that high.

      I did not get any polling card or any flyers so obviously we don’t count in Thorngumbald

      • Hi Chris – Thorngumbald was not voting. It was just South East Holderness which had the by-election – involves Keyingham and towards the East from there. Thorngumbald is in South West Holderness ward.
