Canal & River Trust Council Elections

I see the result for the Private Boaters section of the CRT Council elections have been announced:

Number of eligible voters: 28,805
Votes cast by post: 5,029
Votes cast online: 2,427
Votes cast by telephone: 142
Total number of votes cast: 7,598
Turnout: 26.4%
Number of votes found to be invalid: 42
Total number of valid votes to be counted: 7,556

Result (4 to elect)

The election was conducted using the single transferable vote electoral system.

The following candidates were elected (in order of election):

CAPLAN, Ivor Henry
WELCH, Keith Vaughan

The 26% turnout doesn't look great and I was suprised more people didn't vote on line.
