More than two in five voters feel there have been too many elections and referendums in recent years.

Around half (49%) of Brits think the number of elections and referendums has been “about right”.

In addition, approximately the same amount of people felt there had been “far too many” (11%) elections and referendums, as felt there had not been enough (9%).

Young people showed fewer signs of ‘voter fatigue’, with only 36% of 18-34 year-olds stating there had been too many elections and referendums, compared to 47% of over 55s.

Almost six in ten Scots (57%) – who have also had an Independence referendum in recent years – thought there had been too many elections and referendums. Of these, a fifth (21%) believed there had been “far too many”.
