Hamptonians, partner school pupils and members of the local community packed the Hammond Theatre to hear from one of the UK’s leading experts on voting behaviour. Sir John Curtice, Professor of Politics at the University of Strathclyde is a regular media commentator and President of the British Polling Council.
