Currently, leaflets are being delivered and canvassers including candidates will be knocking at your door and in some cases it may well be the case that the last knock of this type was over 4 years ago.
However, do not dwell on that issue as it is an opportunity to ask them to address the issues that you have in your every day lives.
Do not allow any candidate to tell you that they know, as they do not unless they listen to what you have to say.
Furthermore, do not throw the bunch of leaflets delivered through your letterbox in your recycle container, actually have a look at the election material as there may should be contact details on them and most of all use them.
You may ask why do this?
Simple, you may feel that you are voting for a Party, however, it is the individual that will be representing you and it is important that you ensure that have have a connection in order that you may use your vote in a way that benefits you and it is your vote.
Ensure that should they knock your door, do not just shake their hand but ask them what they can do for you, in order to earn your vote.
They want it, so let them earn it.
