Local Elections: Introduce Compulsory Voting

Additional Information

I want the voting in local elections to become compulsory.

We all have a stake in our local communities and we all have a role to play in it, however small or large.

Making voting in local elections compulsory would give local Councils more legitimacy and ensure everyone plays a role in the community that they live in.

You are more likely to get action on this issue if you sign and share a single petition.
