More to vote via the web

James Rogers
St Albans City and District Council is hoping to boost turnout through its extended e-voting pilot in this week's local elections.

Mike Lovelady, St Albans' returning officer, is optimistic that local turnout will rise above the 38% figure seen in last year's elections. "The main objective of our pilot is to increase voter choice - if the byproduct of that is to increase voter turnout, then all well and good," he said.

St Albans has extended its two-ward e-voting pilot from last year's local election to the rest of the city's 20 wards.
