My polling station is across the road - it might take me all of 10 seconds to get there, maybe I should time it...:)

It would take me about a minute to get to my polling station from my house.

I'm not sure how long it would take from Aberfuckindeen. :p

Is this a rare case of forward planning on your part?

Are you going to 'meet the parents'?:D

I want to vote :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

I have so much to be angry about and want to change these days and there's fuck all I can do about it, just cos I'm a 'drifter' (and didnt think to register early enough, i admit).

Maybe I'll burn down the local polling station instead, that'll make up for it.

Um, yeah, I :heart: democracy

dont worry, with the amazing security of our postal voting system you will probably find someone has already voted for you!

I had our MP (Labour) come round the other day. Seemed a nice guy and if it wasnt for the fact that I would rather stab myself in the eyeballs with rusty crochet hooks than relect Bliar I would probably vote for him.

As it is I suspect I'll vote lib dem,
or monster raving looney.

I think we should be able to vote online in this day and age, or at least at another voting station, especially considering the amount of commuters/contractors/shift workers etc who have no chance of being at their designated area.

TONY YOU TWAT!!! SORT IT OUT!

I also voted, but nobody cared as there are no elections here.

Aberdeen?

I'm due a trip up there soon, not been to see them play football all season. Usually go to two or three games a year :(

You go all the way up there to watch football? Sheesh...

I'm stricken with the terrible curse of supporting Aberdeen. It's a really nice city to visit though.

I know how I'm going to vote in 2006, 2008, and 2010. Thumbs up to Blagojevich, Obama, and Bush (Jeb or somebody else). Thumbs down to Durbin, Clinton, and anybody the GOP runs for governor. Democrat or Republican, I'll vote against senators for president, and for governors for president. Senators can't even be bothered to show up, kinda like Voinovich of Ohio, who missed two Bolton nomination hearings, yet decided he'd heard enough to delay a vote. Would it have killed him to show up at the earlier hearings? One hears more that way. I don't believe that they write or read their own bills. Governors make life or death decisions, and senators decide where to be instead of in Washington.

BTW Aberfuckingdeen wasn't meant to denegrate the city, just emphasise the distance to pop down to the polling station.

What's wrong with denegrating Aberdeen?

I "voted by post", though I handed my sealed ballot envelope straight into the elections office at the town hall.

I can't stand postal voting. Unfortunately I won't be in the constituency on polling day at all, so I didn't really have much choice.

Provost Harrison

No prizes for guessing who you voted for :p

The only time I had a postal vote, I didn't post it. Had to go to a local hall and vote in a traditional ballot box instead.

I'm voting tomorrow by the same traditional method. Next time around I'll try carrier pigeon for a change. Or possibly semaphore.

Provost Harrison

Well I didn't receive a polling card for anywhere...so it looks like I won't be voting anyway...

Couoldn't you skank around for some? Knock at 100 houses at random, you'll probably get about a dozen or so.
