Where I was I had to chose 3 from 9 candidates, 3 of each main party.

I was hoping there would be a UKIP candidate, or failing that a Looney or something, but there wasnt, so I didnt vote.

Disaffected members of the electorate should turn up and vote anyway - and spoil their ballot. A massive amount of spoiled votes would signal loud and clear that some sort of change is needed.

Safe seats tend to have low turnouts in Council elections.I once stood in a two way fight and the turnout was 62%.Quite an entertaining campaign with plenty of mud slinging,most of the effective stuff by me.Result!

46% in my ward, and most others in the area (Bassetlaw ie N Notts) were in the 45-50% range.

My ward would probably have been regarded as a safe seat, as the Conservative councillor had been there since 1999. He lost to Labour this time.

Over the district, Labour gained 5 seats, all from Conservatives, so now have an overall majority on the district council.
