Andy Asquith. Summary: A move towards e-voting. From in-person to postal and now perhaps electronic. Method does not tackle key issue of turnout. Security of result. Disengagement. Knowledge about candidates, issues. Career politicians. E-voting omits debating stage. Information through soundbites. Preference for entertainment. Councillors have governance and representative roles. First past the post versus Single transferable vote (FPP v STV). Importance of civics education.
