Nooooooooo!

Gah, and election thoughts

Spent the whole day at work pulling out people's Postal Votes. Honestly, the whole point of voting by post is to get your vote in early as you won't be able to make it on the actual polling day. So why on earth were so many people posting them on the actual day?!?

So some poor sod (ie me) had the pleasure of going through everything that came in today and pulling out all the Postal Votes.

Not impressed with their lack of foresight.

On the other hand, at least I got my voting done nice and early. Lot more people around than normal though, so I strongly suspect turnout'll be high this time. One of the door greeters that I stopped to chat with suggested that it reminded him of 1997 a lot. So take high turnout, tactical voting galore and a big Lib Dem challenge this time around, and the whole thing leads me to suspect there'll be a lot more close calls and recounts tonight. And probably some high profile defeats.
