Well 16.09% to be precise. That was the miserable turnout in the recent Euro elections in Birkenhead & Tranmere ward. This was the second lowest in Wirral with only Bidston showing a lower turnout.
There are wider issues relating to the causes and implications of low voter turnout. However, it is interesting to note that turnout amongst voters with postal votes was much higher (63% versus 27% across Wirral).
