May Elections 2008 - on video! 

It's that time of year again - a chance for the people of Swindon to have their say
 
The opportunity for those of voting age to decide who runs our town - and how the money raised by Council Tax is spent.
 
Who will get your vote?:
why not take a look at our videos before deciding?

On Thursday 01 May 2008 the Swindon local elections will take place, and representatives from all the major political parties will be vying for seats on Swindon Borough Council [SBC].

At present, the Conservatives are in control of SBC with a majority of 25 seats - but, of course, that could all change if you have your vote.
 
Party No. of councillors
Conservative 42
Labour 12
Liberal Democrat 3
Other 2
 
It's your choice!

That's why we've been out to ask each local party why they think you should vote for them - in just 30 seconds!

That's right, just when everyone is saying they have no time for politics, we found four willing councillors brave enough to state their party's cause with zero waffle, impossible as that may seem!

Just simply a straight-talking half-minute on camera, with no editing.

Decided yet?...

The choice is yours. Just remember it's on Thursday 01 May.
