I've had a leaflet from one mayoral candidate (Celia). Nobody has knocked on my door. I've seen one would-be councillor out and about, and that was buying coffee outside their ward.

I think they should maybe get off their butts if they want to get elected.

Oh, I always vote. (except in the last UK election where the level of impediment was just too much to make express a view on which kind of Tory I would like).

But 75% of people wont be voting, and if candidates want to get elected, I think they should be getting out there, and building a support base that can help in that. One of many problems with the beauty contest approach to electing a mayor is that less people are likely to volunteer to help an individual rather than a movement.
