We have picked two wards in which we received similar votes at the last election and we will run a campaign in only one and not the other. This will give us a way of testing how effective e-campaigning is.

The wards we have picked are The Old Town (195 votes) and Longmeadow (196 votes).

You can help us by voting on which ward you think we should campaign in and which should be left as the control.

Here is some more information to help you decide.
