I'm surprised by the number of local councillor candidates who I can't find online... i.e. appear to have no info on a webpage or any visible online profile. As I have received very little info through the door so far it feels that only a couple of parties are actually interested in wooing my vote. As a postal voter the window of opportunity to influence my voting closes very soon... I understand that not everyone can afford to leaflet every address but an online presence costs little. Am I expecting too much?

Here's my blog.
It's like a history of the last four years of my life.

I agree with you there, I do a postal vote to and have nothing from any party to promote or woo me to vote. May be Royal Mail are still delivering the flyers?!!!

I saw Eliza Mann knocking on people's doors during the week.

here's what we published a few weeks back (updated since, and will continue to update with any leaflets we get, we're in camberwell though, so if, when you get any flyers, you can send them to us, that'd be great, thanks - message me for email)

The Southwark Green Party website has a page of profiles of local candidates - no mention of East Walworth ward. I suspect that the timing of postal voters catches people out as it's so much earlier. Don't understand people not even having a basic online profile though.

Life's too short live it!!!

We have only had one visit, I feel very left out!

The Lib/Dems and Labour are really trying hard here in Lambeth SE1, each of them must have visited three times so far.
I hide from them because I know who I will vote for based on their previous tenure of office.
Fortunately I haven't been bothered by the Tories or UKIP, perhaps they are going to join forces and make a mad rush on polling day.

It does look like it is going to be an interesting election and the pundits will be all over the place in their conclusions.
