Only 30% voted in the local elections of May 1998.

Only 36.5% voted in the European election of June 1994.

In the 1999 European elections the UK recorded a turnout of 23%.

The trend of low British turnouts continued in the 2001 General Election where 59.2% of the British people voted. This was one of the lowest turnouts on record for the mother of democracies (the lowest ever recorded turnout is 58.9% in 1918).
