Both are likely to be apologists and pander for the Muslim community there so there's some reservation from me. Although Galloway also panders to Russia which is just as bad right now.
I would rather have an idiot with a Labour whip telling them what to do over an idiot with a licence to be an idiot as much as they like.

I know tory students voting for labour as the only party set to challenge respect and the lesser of those two evils. Can't see the result standing if Galloway wins given the amount of regulations he's broken

And another one - posting exit polls before the polls close...

As the Eastern European in Age of Ultron said, "No Surrender"
I always forget that he's dead.

Well voted. The person thought I was too young so I'm glad I took my ID.

AS IF I would vote in Alasdair McDonnell. Housemates voting SDLP because they are the most likely nationalists to keep the seat, I'd nearly rather have Bell.

You do not need ID to vote as long as you know your details to tell the polling station staff. You can take along your polling card with your number, address, and other details on which speeds up the process. The staff will usually ask you to confirm your name and address with them verbally; you do not need ID to confirm this and they cannot refuse your vote if you do not have ID. This is the official process presiding officers must follow according to my grandmother who happens to be one, and is laid out on the Electoral Commission's website.

The list does not contain your date of birth on it so they would not know, suggesting they were asking for ID for some other reason. The electoral register contains you date of birth but the list polling station staff have only contains your name, address, and polling number.

Are you sure? I'm sure when I did it this morning they said something about 1997, unless that was written on the polling card.

It would be interesting to see how Facebook has changed the outcome of the election by encouraging young people to go out and vote.

I am pretty certain it is not on the list in the polling station but I am unsure of the polling card as I have never read mine. I am trying to work out how old Aph is as he has confirmed he is in year 12, but in year 12 you are 16 going on 17 unless you have been held back a year. He voted though so he must be 18 which is interesting as I am wondering why he is a year behind most people.

This is a brilliant piece of deduction! :holmes:
I want answers (unless he just said he voted but couldn't actually )

You don't need ID, it's not required by law and if they denied you the right to vote because they thought you were to young despite being registered, then I'd sue personally. That's discrimination and hindering the democratic process, any court would back you up on what comes down to subjective reasoning for you being too young.

I also saw something that said they told you that the age on the list says you're 17, that cannot be right, they were lying and again, I'd challenge them on that as they cannot and nor should they do that.

I know, they didn't ask though I offered because they all seemed really flustered at all the confusion.

it did, I say it myself... I think the lists were made when registering closed and printed at that time?

Any ideas on which channel to follow the election on through the night? Did Sky News say they'd cover every count live, if so that would be quite nice, as much as I try to avoid Sky News.
