We say……please vote
As a newspaper, we never make recommendations at election time. Not even when our own editor is standing! However today is an important day. The right to vote has been hard won in this country, especially so if you are a woman. Many other countries and movements cherish and envy in equal measure what we have here.
So what we say on behalf of our papers is PLEASE VOTE!
Whatever your political preference, please use your right to vote and make your voice heard. In Somerton and Frome we have a range of good candidates to choose from in no particular order:
Mark Blackburn LibDem
Davdi Warburton: Conservative
Sean Dromgoole: Labour
Theo Simon: Green
Richard Hadwin: Independent
