Remember our campaign to find out why at least 6,000 voters were lost in East Devon? Here are EDDC’s current figures:
Electorate (People registered to Vote)
February 2013 104,274
February 2014 103,254
January 2015 102,849
January 2016 108,502
Strange that during the period that Cranbrook was developed and residents started moving in, figures went down every year. After EDW highlighted discrepancies – and after Returning Officer appeared before a Parliamentary committee to explain himself – (he preferred telephone registration over the advised check-up canvassers) there was a sudden jump in registrations.
EDW looks forward to seeing the figures for January 2017 very very shortly – in good time for DCC elections in May 2017.
