We must ex­er­cise our right to vote

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

YOUR edi­to­rial last week was quite rightly urg­ing the peo­ple of Ash­ford to ex­er­cise their vote. You also men­tion that we should take time to read or hear what the can­di­dates have to say. Un­for­tu­nately sev­eral years ago the pow­ers that be de­cided that our home in Boys Hall Road should form part of the South Willes­bor­ough Ward, vot­ing in Cud­worth Road as op­posed to Church Road, Willes­bor­ough. Since that date we have re­ceived no elec­toral com­mu­ni­ca­tions from any of the three main po­lit­i­cal par­ties for lo­cal elec­tions (very lit­tle for the Gen­eral Elec­tion). My wife and I are of the gen­er­a­tion that be­lieves that one should make use of the right to the vote. How­ever, we ar­rive at the polling sta­tion with no knowl­edge of who the can­di­dates are and what they have to of­fer. L.P. Loughe, Boys Hall Road, Ash­ford.
