Voting is one of the most important choices we make as consumers. Yet even though last week’s Euro elections were the most hotly-contested for years, only just over 1 in 3 people eligible to vote did so. So we want to know if you did vote - and if not, why not?

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.
