Any Europeans reading this should go and do likewise, if they haven't already.
YAY! I am happy to see people voting! :-)
I did it by post last Friday. :)
How much time do you get to vote in England? We just get one morning (sunday).
My local polling station is open from 8am-10pm today, which seems fairly standard.
Here it's 7am to 10pm today. Elections in the UK always take place on Thursdays.
Did so on the way home from work. Was the only person in an enormous hall, felt very ashamed of St Andrews democracy today.
Everybody's been quite insistent that I vote, so I did it twice, just to make sure.
(Well, ok, one of those was a proxy vote on behalf of a friend who lives in New Jersey.)
Ahh, the joys of postal voting. Makes it so much easier if you don't know where you'll be that day...
I did it late morning on my way to the cinema to see the new "Terminator" movie. It is in a school hall and in previous years they have shut the school for the day. This year it appeared to be in full educatyness, meaning that the staff car park was full to overflowing and voters were left to park dangerously on the busier than you'd expect road. However, I survived the ordeal with minimum damage to me or the car.
I did it this evening, when I got back from York (been on a course for work).
I hadn't noticed my voter number on my polling cards until they asked to look at it at the polling station. It was 666. I'm rather chuffed by that.
It's good to vote. After work and setting up outreach in Milton Keynes, still got in to vote.
Cromwell rd Christian centre. It's even more pokey than the polling station in Dublin where I used to vote.
Irish govt may come under pressure if they loose badly.
I like democracy and ballots
