Yesterday I went to vote in Bromborough Library and was the only person in their, it happened to a friend later on in the same venue.
Schools were closed yesterday and I would guess that the same situation was happening their too, many parents will have taken days off work costing the economy, costing families and affecting buisness.
I understand why we need a polling station at regular(ish) intervals for elderly,disabled and other disadvantaged people, however there was another polling station in Mendell School which I would guess is about 0.3 miles away and with postal voting and such like do we now need as many polling stations?
Not having them in schools but in Libraries, church hall's or whatever would surely help those I mentioned above and save money. The turnout for Wirral elections was 36.39%, total votes was 86,529.
What I am saying is do we need all the disruption for just over 1/3 to vote? The lowest % turnout on Wirral was a 25.9% turnout in Seacombe.
