    Hi all,

    I would be grateful if you could add some points to this question. I'm seeking about 6 - 8 well established points. You may use evidence from 1945 - present.

    This is a practice question for AS level Government and Politics.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thank you, and kind regards.

    Do you not have books or something which cover this?

    I'd have thought asking for answers on an internet forum is really scrapping the barrel.

    – Low turnout at elections which undermines the legitimacy of the results
    Turnout at the 2015 General Election was 66.1% only 36.9% voted for the Conservative Party
    -Turnout has also been poor in referendums
    Only34% of voters participated in the 1998 referendum on creating a London mayor and LondonAssembly
    -Membership of political parties is decreasing
    In 2015, only 1% of electorate were members of the 3 major parties
    1950- labour had over 1 mil members but in 2010 it only had 193,000
    1950-conservative had over 3 mil but dropped to 150,000 in 2010

    Hope this helped x

    It was a question posed, for a genuine answer - not for debate on whether I have the correct resources.

    Low turnout has yet to lead to produce an actual ‘crisis’
    it has been steadily increasing. Although only 61.4%of the electorate participated in 2005, this increased to 65.1% in 2010, and then 66.1% in 2015.
    some referendums have attracted higher turnout, and further referendums have been requested
    The Northern Ireland Good Friday Agreement referendum in 1998 high turnout (81%) and a decisive victoryfor the ‘yes’ campaign (71%).

    2014 Scottish independence referendum hadturnout of 84.5%, reaching 90% in some areas, and even included 16 and 17-year-old voters for the first time, witharound 75% participating. 97% of 16-17 years olds who voted said that they would vote again in future referendums.
    memberships of the Labour Party, many third parties, and pressure groups, is growing
    Labour’s membership had grown to around 388,407 by 2016, and many more ‘registered supporters’ paid £3 to beable to participate in the 2015 leadership election. The SNP’s membership has grown fromaround 22,000 prior to the 2014 independence referendum, to over 115,000 by 2016

    I'd highly reccomend reading the mark scheme and examiners report.

    Both give a good insight into the question.

    True, in some ways I like that. They'll be less strict as you can sometimes pass more hypothetical example.
