Voting: A Little Useful Information
Well, today’s the day. I woke up with a real sense of excitement. It feels like Christmas or exam day or getting ready to go on holiday or job interview day all rolled into one. In short, I’m excited but I’m incredibly nervous too.
If you’re getting ready to vote for the first time, the BBC’s guide to voting may help. Please don’t be put off if you’ve lost your polling card or never received one: provide your name and address at the polling station and (provided you are registered to vote) you’ll be on their checklist. Polling stations are open until 10 p.m. and voting in person is a very quick process.
If you haven’t returned your postal vote yet, don’t worry! You may be able to take your postal vote to your polling station and post it there. Check with your polling station or with your local authority if you are unsure. See Direct Gov for local government telephone numbers.
So, I hope everyone has a great day, manages to get to the polling station (don’t let a little rain put you off!) and votes with their hearts. If, like me, you’re watching the results roll in tonight, don’t forget your caffeine and a quick nap in the afternoon!
Enjoy the day!
