Council issues election rallying call

Warrington Guardian: Council issues election rallying call Council issues election rallying call

COUNCIL bosses are urging residents to sign up to the electoral register before votes in May.

Local elections and European elections take place on May 22 with a deadline of May 6 for people to register.

Alison McCormick, the council’s electoral services manager, said: “If you’re not on the electoral register you may not be able to get a credit rating.

“This could stop you applying for a credit card, a loan or a mortgage.

“And of course if you can’t vote, you lose the opportunity to have your say in who will represent you for the next few years, not just in the Town Hall council but also in the European Parliament.

“So we would encourage people to sign up to the electoral register, or tell us if you’ve moved – and don’t forget to apply for a postal vote if you need one.”

If you can't even bother to vote you can't really justify whinging.

People need to get off their backsides and vote, and to learn the difference between whining and complaining.

I will vote as I always do whenever an election comes along but with very little hope things will alter for the better. The system does not cater for change, instead it encourages keeping the status quo but under successively different political hues. For sure we are repeatedly promised lessons have been learned as each of the many council malfunctions emerges but they never are. In fact nothing has changed for the past 15 years or so that I've lived here despite the obvious failings, some illegal of the council. We still have largely a bunch of unfit for purpose politicians who are not up to the job who are served by an equally uffp bunch of officers, all of whom are happy continually trying to pull the wool over the eyes of electorate in the hope they will tire of asking for change.
