We’re off! The government yesterday announced yesterday that the next local elections will be held in three months’ time on 6 May. There has been discussion for months on whether they would be held. Whether they should be held before the pandemic is at its end. I am concerned that many people will think it is not safe to vote. That will weaken democracy. The government should ensure that all voters are asked to apply for a postal vote by sending a letter to every household. It should allow people to register for a postal vote online. In the longer term, we must look at online voting.
