Douglas Hancox expresses concern over the low voter turnout in recent Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) English Pharmacy Board elections (
The Pharmaceutical Journal 2015;294:661).
If people do not vote it could be that they do not want any of the candidates. The fact that those candidates are elected on extremely small mandates means that the RPS is being run by people who are unrepresentative of the majority.
I have been a member of the RPS for more than 40 years and this has always been the case.
