To vote or not to vote - that is the question?

Quite a lot of Winchester residents visit the Winchester City Council website, and a number are sufficiently interested in making their views known to take the trouble to click on the poll about voting intentions. But the current state of the poll (evening of Friday 5 February) is that an astonishing 64% have already decided not to vote in the forthcoming elections! We would all do well to remember Edmund Burke's famous aphorism:

"All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."

We surely ought to vote?
