    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!

    Are you encouraging your supporters to vote for another candidate, if so, who?

    All Parties need to wake up to the use of technology and the more crucial personal contact– be brilliant to have a soap box on Queens Square or Eagles Meadow with all candidates speaking direct to their electorate and being challenged on the spot rather than orchestrated events.

    There have been a couple of candidates in town doing similar over the last couple of weeks – megaphone style in the street prominence.

    To me this type of stuff should be happening all the time rather than just every few years!

    Its a best effort poll – we did look at some demographic stuff or even commissioning one formally however the costs involved are huge. Previously the method for the euro elections appeared to work, but there is always the argument that a stopped clock is right twice a day etc!

    It just says I’ve already voted. Which I haven’t.

    I guess that’s down to the dynamic IP range I share with other Sky users.

    Yes – it is not a specific block on you, however learning from our Euro ones we have tried to make this less causally gameable , although it is trivial to work around it if that would be anyones intent.

    However hopefully those types would have something better to do on a Saturday evening :)
