Why vote when not a candidate in sight?

I would like to answer Duncan Barkes’ item last week about people who do not vote.

I have lived at my present address for over 25 years and, in all that time, not a single councillor or their representatives have bothered to knock on my door to tell me why I should vote for them, or to give me a chance to ask them questions about what they could do for me if I voted for them.

In this last round of voting, not even a single leaflet landed on my front doormat.

Now, you tell me why I should take time to vote for any of them about local issues when I do not know what they are planning to do.
