Referendum Result

The residents of Bury have voted by a margin of 3 to 2 to reject the proposal that Bury should have an Elected Mayor. The result was:

Yes 10,338
No 15,425

The turnout was 18.25% and there were 28 papers rejected.

I am pleased that the proposal was rejected and I am only sorry that the whole exercise has cost the taxpayers of Bury a sum likely to be in excess of £100,000 and this money could have been better spent on other Council services.

  1. As far as I can recall one ballot paper was rejected for having a mark from which the voter might be identified and there were twenty-seven which were rejected for being blank.
