A big thanks to the very nice people running the URC polling station today.

We went down to vote this morning, but I forgot my glasses. The list was a blur.

However, the extremely helpful team were on hand to help. They had a magnifying glass on the table, which they were able to lend me.

Talk about knowing the demographic!

:)

In the local elections we only received one leaflet through the door (Conservative) - I noticed when I went to vote the Liberal Democrat is a local man living in The Gardens.  Difficult to make decisions without all the information needed.

I did consider voting Green but as Bill Storey was the only person I received any communication from, he got my vote

Perhaps the Green Candidate was trying to save paper!

Lucky you for receiving any communication. The first I knew there were county elections on was when I walked into the polling station and got given a ballot paper for it  :icon_scratch:
