That happened to me once before in Australia! I was devastated I missed it, and I got fined (because voting is compulsory there). Makes me wonder whether enough awareness is being raised about elections.

Thank you, but not much, to be honest! I might have to waylay my pride and actually see a doctor :laugh:

Not registered to vote in my uni city and wasn't about to get a 2 hour train home to do one vote that barely matters.

23rd is EU elections. 2nd is local councils.

I voted and stayed Tory since i like them at a local level.

I will be voting for Farage to illustrate the Brexit betrayal on the 23rd. Already have my polling card and the Friday booked off work.
