When did you last use your bank branch?

When did you last use your bank branch?

Whether it’s down to customer behaviour, cost-cutting or both, banks are closing branches left, right and centre – in fact, 100s of branches have been shutting their doors every year.

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
