    Not yet. Gotta get dressed first. Bleagh. I've gone LibDem, despite my anti-populist instincts.

    I've seen people walking into the polling station in their dressing gown before now... granted they did live over the road, but still!

    This isn't the thread for discussion about party politics, there's another one for that.

    Yeah, lots of people seem to have strong views, but I wondered how many people actually go out and vote for what they want.

    I wasn't going to vote, but since some people I know are voting Labour based on facts like 'the last Conservatives made my mortgage go up' or 'labour is best for poor people', I am going to have to. We don't want any more ***** like Jaqui Smith getting into positions of power.

    This is why I stay away from political discussions. People prefer rhetoric to good manners.

    I'll be on my way to vote when my father gets back to vote. I'n going to be glued to the TV tonight! Going to be an interesting 24 hours to say the least! I will be very interested in the actual turn out for voting as there are many more factors for people to vote and not vote at the same time this general election!

    They opened my polling station 15mins early, so I got there for 7am and got both votes done, for council and Government. You can tell it's a big election, they let people keep the polling cards as souvenirs :D

    Re whether people vote for what they want, above [EDIT] will answer in the other thread.
