Lucy Powell MP: Do you think I look like a politician?

Lucy_Powell_parl_default.jpg.ashx.jpgYesterday the BBC broadcast Lucy's piece on voter engagement as part of their Daily Politics show.

Unfortunately Lucy's byelection last year had a record low turnout and Lucy is very keen to find out why and to encourage more people to become involved and to vote.

She has been discussing the reasons why people don't vote with people across the constituency as part of the Labour People's Politics Inquiry. She was surprised by the level of interest in political issues but at the same time a lack of interest in the political system.


Lucy is determined the reverse the record low turnout and to do more to encourage people to engage with politics and politicians.
