Summary

Exploring the historical context, the structure and method of operation, Local Elections in Britain clearly addresses the key issues and confusions that surround the local election system including:
* the nature and extent of electoral participation including the crucial issue of low turnout
* the candidates, and the growing proportion of women challenging for council seats
* the performance of political parties, now a central feature of local elections
* the dangers of viewing local elections as national opinion polls
Drawing on the results of more than 100,000 local elections dating back over three decades the book is the most comprehensive study of local elections in Britain.
