    Can someone help me?

    I want to find out what % of the population in Scotland, England and Wales vote BNP. Basically, in terms of %, who is supporting the BNP more?

    Scroll down to 'Minor parties and Independents' and there's a bit on BNP votes there.

    At the last election, didn't they get 900,000 votes, which would equate to 3% of the electorate?

    Youv've also got to look at their proportion of the vote, not just as proportion of the electorate...

    They got nearly 2% of the vote, and failed to win any seats. Seeing how turn out is usually below 50%, have a guess.

    900,000 votes 0.03% of the electorate.... Do you want to have another look at those numbers? I didn't realise we had 3 billion people eligible to vote in the UK...

    UK Turnout in a general election across the UK has never been below 60% let alone 50%.

    Wow, I'm quite surprised - I love how as time goes on, peoples interest in who rules dwindles quite drastically.

    (which means yes, you're right.)

    It dropped to 59.4% in 2001, when the general consensus was that Labour had it in the bag. But yeah low turnout is usually only in by-elections and EU elections.
