Ancoats and Clayton By-Election Result (December 2013)

No, this isn't deja vu, Loz stood yesterday in yet another by election for Ancoats and Clayton. The ten primary positions of his campaign can be seen on the Manchester PPUK blog.

With it being a colder/darker time of year, and another by-election not long after the last one, it was the unfortunate expectation that it would be difficult to get voters out to vote. That, and with ten candidates to the seven from last time voters had a wider choice (a good thing) it is realistic to see the overall turnout be lower (last time was 13.5%) as well as vote shares being divided and thus trending lower than last time.

As before the Pirate message was a strong call to all electors to exercise their democratic right/responsibility and to vote, no matter who for.
