ON Friday morning I received my fourth reminder to register my vote from Durham County Council.

Despite having registered weeks ago, these costly letter continue to arrive. I’m wondering in this age of austerity with local Govternment cuts, just how much Durham County Council spends on “reminding” it’s residents to vote.

This seems a bewildering waste of public money and I’m sure your readers will be most interested in knowing where their hard-earned money goes to.
