After the televised debate between the leaders of the three main parties the Times visited Beckenham to check out the opinions on the street.
Here's what YOU told us...
Supermarket worker Ann Steele, 66, from Penge, said: "I did not think a lot of the debate. David Cameron looked a

Retired police officer Michael Concannon, 69, from Beckenham, said: "I quite enjoyed it. I expected it to be quite boring. I will be voting for the Liberal Democrats. I was obviously quite impressed with Nick Clegg."
