Make My Vote Count!

Today I, along with probably only half the population, voted in the general election. Salford has been a Labour strong hold for decades. It is for this reason that if you hadn’t been watching the news you might not have even known there was an election on. No posters in windows, no cars with tanoys, no media scrums. All I got were three tiny leaflets through the post. Whatever your political views, the present system of voting means only people living in marginal constituencies have any real power.
