Have your say

When politicians from Karlsruhe in Germany visit our city, I often get into conversation about how elections work.

I am proud that our councillors represent a geographical area and are not elected through a list system across the city.

I think this is important so that residents can identify with particular people (in the case of Bulwell Forest Ward, three of us) that make it their first priority to engage with a community (or in our case about seven communities).
