A Gloucestershire mayor will no longer face charges after refusing to fill in his census form.
Stroud Mayor John Marjoram, a Quaker, said he refused to complete the form because of his beliefs.
In February, Mr Marjoram pleaded not guilty and was due to face trial at the end of May.
The Crown Prosecution Service said the case was dropped because there was "not enough evidence to provide a realistic prospect of conviction".
