12 December

Election Day today so I did my bit for democracy by “telling” at one of the polling stations. This consists of asking voters for their poll card number so they can be ticked off the list and not pestered to vote later in the day. Unfortunately tellers are not allowed in the polling station as they represent political parties so have to stand outside in the pouring rain, I did two sessions 8 to 9 this morning and 12 noon till 1 pm, needless to say it rained the whole time and my paperwork was a soggy mess. This gives you an idea of what it was like outside and the warm cosy glow of the polling station welcoming everyone but us!
