The people too 'disillusioned' to vote in election

People living in Stoke-on-Trent who don't vote in elections have been explaining why.

The city returned three Labour MPs in 2015, yet more people failed to cast a valid vote than the numbers who voted for the winners.

The BBC England Data Unit analysed the 2015 General Election, which suggested that non-voters would play a pivotal role in the results if they were to use their vote.
