Postal knocking up

I've been doing a stint of knocking up postal votes and very rewarding it has been. The conventional wisdom is that people who bother to register to get PVs are going to vote. It is true the turn out is much higher than non PVs  but as more and more folk register the turn out will slip. Anyway there is always someone who rings up after the polls have closed to say that they have forgotten to send their vote back.

I have found a great deal of enthusiasm for voting with people freely telling me that they have supported us-and that included people who we had previously canvassed as 'soft con'. That pattern was repeated again this evening when I was out in Ainsdale and got a really warm reception.

Post a Comment

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
