VOTES for this year's local elections are coming in thick and fast but the overall turnout is not yet known.

Though councillors and police commissioner candidates have done their best to encourage people to vote for them, many people decide to not bother going to the polls at all.

Just over one in three registered voters actually took part in the elections in 2018 and there were some areas where it was barely one in four.

So, we would like to know - have you voted today? And if not, why not?
