Why didn't people vote?

We asked our readers whether or not they voted yesterday, and their reasons for their choice.

The majority of respondents to our polls did cast their vote yesterday, a figure that doesn't quite align with the voter turnout of less than 60% - so the results in terms of percentages are not scientific.

However, we received some interesting reasons why people either couldn't vote or chose not to vote.

Some found problems with the constituency changes, some felt that regardless of the politicians on offer the voters "get nothing in the long run" and some "forgot".

See some of the responses below.
