It is not surprising ballot paper is long

Dear Sir, — It is noticeable that in order to be a town councillor in Congleton your surname needs to start with a letter in the first half of the alphabet. (Only one outside beginning with M). 
It is not surprising when the ballot paper is so long. Surely it would be more democratic to increase the number of wards and have less votes. — Yours faithfully,

MARGARET FOX
Congleton.
