Thoughts from a polling station for the British EU Referendum
where I work has the pleasure of being turned into a polling station for UK votes. I also live in the area so can vote at work
- •Isn't Democracy great
- •I hope people turn out to vote
- •When people are leaving over hearing far too many saying they are voting out
- •More people voting than normal but still terrible turnout in Openshaw don't people realise how important it is.
- •Went with wife and son to vote great privilege to show my 3 year old son democracy in action.
- •Marked my ballot something so simple but so important.
- •People moaning about having to use pencils. We have always used pencils in an election.Campaign now started to bring your own Pen so your vote can't be rubbed out I liked the suggestion on twitter to bring your own laminator. Only through social media could this campaign get going
- •A couple I know said they cancelled each others vote out. Like them both now left wondering which one disagrees with me.
- •Lord Mayor dropped by my only objection is he looks younger than meAren't Lord Mayors meant to be old.
- •Some one walked in now our office reeks of canabisSpliff anyone to clear your mind before voting
- •One of the exit Poll people has brought the daily mail to read. Surrey this counts as bringing political propaganda into a polling station legal?
- •It's end of work time and we have our first lines of people.
- •In the end it was great to see so many people of Openshaw exercise there democratic right.
- •Worried about the out vote in Openshaw but doubt we are representative of the population (fingers crossed )
