Irrelevant Elections ?: The Quality of Local Democracy in Britain

Front Cover
Oxford University Press, Incorporated, 1988 - Political Science - 260 pages
This book, the most elaborate survey of its kind ever carried out in Britain, examines the controversy surrounding the political and electoral basis for local government. Drawing on extensive interviews with 1100 electors in November 1985 and follow-up interviews with 745 of them just after the local elections of 1986, Miller documents the many factors influencing voter participation and choice in local elections, and their implications for the continued existence of elective local democracy.
