Do you have local elections in your area on Thursday?

Will you be voting or cannot be bothered.

The wife and I will be popping down to stick an X on the forms.

If you are too bloody lazy, or apathetic, to vote, you might as well go and live in a dictatorship, North Korea perhaps.

At least with a dictatorship, you have a very good chance that the leadership is corrupt, and that you obey them!.

I voted early this morning at my local primary school in Glasgow...it's a new system of voting - you have to put your preferences on the voting form with numbers instead of an X cross i.e. 1, 2, 3, ....

It was a bit like being in the bookies...I hope my 'bet' comes up :o)

I did not vote. Its a waste of time. Instead after working hard I went home and took it easy.

"I did not vote. Its a waste of time."

You're obviously free to make that choice. Fortunately a lot of other people don't share your view. They don't think it's a waste of time to vote for the people they want to be governed by. They think that the democratic process is important, and they know that life without it might be as horrific as it is for the citizens of many countries who don't have democratic government.

Lots of us worked hard today, and lots of us voted at some point. It isn't such a difficult thing to do.

If you look at last nights results, I am sure that Shopgirl did not vote because it was too difficult, she probably like many others is totally disillusioned with politics and politicians.

Just remember most of these tory and liberal demo MP's mothers must of claimed some kind of benefits in the past. and yet they want to cut and stop benefits. Not everyone should be penalized by a tory idiotic government.

The more cuts they make the more problems they make, not all technology can solve issues.

Just checked the London Elects website, and there appears to be no information yet on the results or turn-out. Counting should have started at 8.45am.

In one ward in Edinburgh the Lib Dem candidate got fewer votes than a candidate called Professor Pengoo, a penguin!

Time for Nick Clegg to re-group methinks.
