Penultimate weekend!

Penultimate weekend before Polling Day, on Thursday 3rd May of course ...

... and all that leaflet, and letter, preparation yesterday put to good use right across the city.

Turnout is a worry for these Local Council elections - first time they have been 'stand-alone' since 1995, so any 'turnout-comparisons' with 1999, 2003 or 2007 will be slightly false.

Turnout in 1995 was 44.9% across Scotland ... but that was 17-years ago, and I think most people would acknowledge that the general trend for election-turnouts has been downward across those years?

But the 1995-comparison is probably the best we have to go on!
