    Penultimate candidate video up with another view on fracking – it appears there will be a range of views on this topic for anyone looking to vote based off it.

    There is a few tweaks due through after the elections – however the reads are still here, just a case of people posting and perhaps starting topics that are important to them :)

    Queensferry is going and that is a much more modern store – told the staff there had letters the other day with the news, although also told there is a recruitment stand still in the door.

    Locally this does not appear to have happened – so hopefully not!

    Wrexham Council have beaten us to the query on this by emailing requesting a change! For completeness as some read the forums as well as the articles it is below:

    This morning (Wednesday 22nd) Wrexham Council have clarified the data released alongside the voting registration stats to say “The population figures quoted in yesterday’s email for both Parliamentary seats include children who are under 18 and cannot vote as well as people who are not commonwealth citizens but are residents in the areas of both seats.”

    Wrexham Council have requested: “There is a fear that the more people read this article the more will attempt to re-register and cause severe disruption with our electoral services.

    “Could you please remove or amend the article to reflect that the population figures also included under 18’s and non-commonwealth citizens as both categories will be unable to vote in the upcoming election.”

    Back to Moggsie’s point, it appears the number was irrelevant and no idea why it was given out!

    Just seen this, don’t know if it’s of interest to any on here? https://www.facebook.com/events/1429389057362686/

    I had a chat with the organiser last week and its good to see this pressing forward, I think it is the only open one happening locally!

    Also do those roadside election placards actually do anything? (other than look rather unsightly).

    There has been some abuse scrawled on a few by Gresford so it appears they are a creative outlet for some :)

    It crossed my mind when I read that – but it is the data given by Wrexham Council as a comparison based from June 2013. The 2011 census data came out in lump form in 2012 and more detail in 2013 so hopefully it is a number provided for a reason rather than a load of babies and children being included!

    Looking at the census data, and this is for the county borough not the wrexham constituency specifically the split is:

    Age 0-15: 25,818
    Age 16 to 64: 86,175
    Age 65+: 22,851
    All people total: 134,844

    There is also this document http://www.wrexham.gov.uk/MinutesData/ExBoard/Reports/hccs6012.doc that refers to a similar figure so would imagine it is despite not formally stated – however in such things firmness rather than guesswork is best!

    Another ‘local’ poll has been run by NWN in Mold’s Leader publication.

    Results have Conservatives winning Wrexham with 32% of the vote against Labour’s 22%

    Clywd South has a Conservative victory too with 46% of the vote against UKIP second with 23% of vote – Labour pushed to third there with 15%.

    Anyone know of any other polls locally or sampling local views?

    David Cameron has also visited NWN’s offices in Chester today it seems.

    There is likely one due on May 2nd that is open to all – hope to have details soon.

    Wrexham.com has spent the day doing something decent regarding the election so hopefully this time next week will have more on that!

    It is worth noting that on previous occasions follow up questions / comments had been denied, but one was allowed yesterday.

    I dont know if the policies / rules or whatever are different for the business of the meeting compared to the public questions at the start though!
