Thread Name: Elections: How do you do it at home?
Subject: RE: How do you do it at home?
Its all pencil and paper in Britain. This is a somewhat cynical view but basically we have several months of people telling us what they are going to do and how bad the others are and then whoever gets elected does exactly the same and blames the other side if it doesn't work.Postal votes have to be sent prior to the date so that by the end of the night we know who has one. As the policies seem to vary very little these days it really doesn't make a lot of difference. We used to have a Labour Party in Britain but it got hijacked and it's only a matter of time before it disappears completely!
