Eric Gordel, Exeter: "I shall not be voting. We know nothing about the candidates or really what it is all about. The police should know what they're doing, and if it's not broken, why try to fix it?"
Janice Buckland, pet shop owner, Beacon Heath: "There have been no pamphlets about candidates and no real explanation of what it is all about. I doubt it will make a difference. I don't think I'll vote."
Tony Reese, 53, Taunton, Somerset: "I think I will vote for the Independent candidates. We have had leaflets and visits so we know a bit more. I am surprised people in Exeter know so little about it.
Beulah Ehling, Heavitree: "I want to exercise my franchise. I don't know much about the candidates. I think they should have made more effort. I will vote but it's a lottery when you are not sure of the differences."
