Compulsory voting
  • A majority of the public (55%) would support making voting in a general election compulsory while 37% would oppose this.
  • More generally, 39% say the government should be doing more to get people to vote while 53% say the responsibility lies with the individual.
  • The public are split on whether mandatory voting in elections (32%) or compulsory politics lessons in secondary schools (32%) would be the best way to encourage participation in British politics. 24% say neither of these options.
Current Issues

Trident
  • Asked in March about possible options for Trident when it reaches the end of its useful life, a quarter of the public (24%) were in favour of Britain giving up all nuclear weapons completely.
  • A higher proportion of Brits (31%) believe that when Trident comes to an end it should be replaced with an equally powerful nuclear missile system.
  • 29% think Britain should retain a nuclear missile system, but it should be less powerful and cost less than replacing Trident.
