The Wotton Discussion Board

Wildcard!

A place where things not fitting above and not directly involving Wotton or humourous, offbeat, "New Year Resolutions" and things that wouldn't be out of place in a chatroom.

A relatively narrow Cordwell victory based on the opinion of the 35% who voted:

Good to see John Cordwell elected again as he works hard for the town.

Hope the other 65% who couldn't be bothered to vote won't be complaining about anything GCC do over the next few years!

Would having a different voting system bring more people out to make their mark? Who knows? But it would be worth a try...

I see a massive 47% of Wottonians managed to vote in the local elections on Thursday. Excellent effort compared with previous attempts, and excellent effort compared with other areas.

Pathetic effort by the 53% who couldn't be bothered (with some exceptions, obviously). To paraphrase what Blade said back in 2013, above, don't even think about criticising anything to do with Wotton if you can't get off your arse to vote.

Congrats to Tucker, Braun & Butcher on getting elected.

15% of people voted UKIP skeptic

And well done to the two people who voted for too many people. Thank you for your contributions.
