The polls have opened for the 2010 UK General Election, and I’d like to strongly suggest that you take advantage of this and vote.
- Polling stations are open from 7am and close at 10pm on Thursday 6 May ONLY.
- You do NOT need a polling card to vote – simply turn up to your local polling station and give them your name and address (in Northern Ireland only, you must provide official with photographic ID)
- If you’re unsure of who to vote for, may I suggest this rather wonderful independant website: http://www.votematch.org.uk/
- If you are unsure of where your polling station is, contact your council’s Electoral Registration Office. You can find their contact details by visiting the About My Vote website, run by the Electoral Commission: http://www.aboutmyvote.co.uk/
Democracy is a wonderful thing, a priviledge so few in the world have, and it’s an incredibly shame to waste it. So regardless of which candidate you vote for, please make sure you cast your ballot!
