If you are in the UK but not in London, today you can vote for the Police and Crime Commissioner. While some people object to the fact that most candidates are backed by political parties, I think not voting would be worse than refusing to vote.
If you are in the Thames Valley area then the abovelinked set of articles may help. Tony in Headington discusses the process and also the candidates’ background and performance in hustings. Some of the info will be useful to confused voters generally, not just in Thames Valley.
We will be running an RHoK event in Oxford as part of the global event in December.
This Sunday (July 31) heralds the first Oxford to London Eco-Rally, which will see a convoy of state-of-the-art, zero-emissions vehicles run from Broad Street in the City of Dreaming Spires to the Mall in the capital. The vehicles will be arriving in Oxford the day before and making use of the city’s electric vehicle charging points, now available at selected public car parks and Park and Ride sites. Then on Sunday they will be on display to the public from 8am to 10am in Broad Street before the start.
