Since changes to the law in making it easier for electors to obtain postal votes far more have done so than in the past – usually 15% – 25% of the electorate are now signed up. More important is the higher propensity of these postal voters to use their vote, particularly in local elections – the postal vote turnout is normally at least twice that of other voters. The opportunity is that while they are demonstrably more engaged in the political process many of them are not committed to any party and are open to persuasion. See our items below on
