In 21 of Wales’ 22 local authorities, polling cards are starting to drop on door mats. On May 3rd, the people of Wales will be asked to go to the polls once again.
Since May 2010, the electorate have voted to choose their local MP, their constituency Assembly Member and their regional Assembly Members.
They’ve also voted in two referendums – on enhanced legislative powers for the National Assembly for Wales and on the Lib Dems’ unwanted Alternative Vote proposal.
It would be fair for the people of Wales to say they’re suffering with a severe case of election fatigue.
But perhaps the most important Welsh election comes this May, as they choose who will represent them on local councils the length and breadth of Wales.
In the aftermath of the expenses scandal, too often, people feel removed from politics.
