The United Kingdom votes next month and if you have forgotten how you physically vote or it’s the first time you are voting either due to your age or the fact you want to make a difference this time we have provided some very useful information for you:
Polling stations are open from 7am to 10pm on polling day, and are usually public buildings like schools or local halls. And your local polling station will be listed on your ballot paper which should have been delivered to you by now. Further information can be reached at the link below
How you vote is:
- Take your ballot paper into a polling booth.
- Follow the instructions on the notices in the polling booth and on the top of the ballot paper to vote.
- Put it in the ballot box.
There is only one issue though how do you get to the polling station, there are a number of ways
- Walking (its forecast to be a warm sunny day)
- Take a minicab (AK Cars are offering a £5 minicab to your local polling station from your house in W10, W9, NW8)
- Call your local candidate and tell them that they have to give you a piggyback and you will repay the piggyback with a vote
We are not economic experts and how much a vote is worth to a prospective MP and weather the piggyback is worth more than the £5 local minicab fare AK Cars is offering for that one day only. (NB: IF prospective MP’s want to pay for voter cabs please get in touch). On a serious note we are very privileged in the UK that we are allowed to choose who governs our country and we urge everyone to make sure you vote.
