Highland Council elections 4 May 2017 - Are Nairn's apathy levels unsustainable?

Last time round in 2012 only 44% of those on the electoral voted in the Highland Council election. Can we sustain that level of apathy or will we break the 50% barrierr? 

The image below (click on to enlarge) gives details of how the preference votes were transferred and who got in. . Remember Stephen Fuller replaced Colin MacAulay at a byelection held on the same day as the General election and he, Michael, Liz and Laurie are all standing again. Here at the Gurn we understand that there may be at least three other candidates that have shown an interest so far.
