So here we go again we are supposed to go to the polls on Thursday but surprise surprise other than a leaflet through the door we haven't seen sight nor sound of any of the candidates. One independent candidate here has put out a you tube video but absolutely no opportunity to find out anything about issues which I am bothered about

I am not to keen on him as he seems to support ratepayer funded buses to compete with the local taxis on the most profitable services (trips to and from Peterborough hospital)

Maybe you should read up on the protocol for canvasing during the pandemic. just to make it simple for you door to door canvassing was banned so as to avoid un necessary contact. candidates could do leaflet drops but not knock on doors.

it makes no difference I have never seen anyone door knocking locally in over 30 years

Nor do they seem to be attempting to make themselves available in other ways only 1 candidate has a twitter account that I can see the others are fakebook only

Same here, and I couldn't be more happy if it remains the same for the next 30 years.

got to the polling station to find there were 2 elections 1 for police and crime commissioner as well as county council

Not seen or heard any info on police & Crime so basically voting in the dark no idea who any of the candidates were or their priorities
