Anyone voting tomorrow?

/rant on
I’ve received no fliers, no knocks on the door, no candidates have written articles for any local newspapers, a web-search reveals four would be chancers who collectively appear to know less about budget and policing than most all the members of this board.
I’ve no idea what any of the candidates expect to achieve if elected and what they intend to do with their 'new found powers'
Yet I don’t want to lose my democratic right to vote.
Is it wrong to submit a spoiled ballot paper?
I believe this will be a once in a lifetime opportunity, I cannot see it happening again.

No, it's perfectly acceptable.
I've never done it before (as far as I know), this may be the first genuine meaningful opportunity!
I think something like "I have no idea who these people are and what they represent" written clearly on the paper will achieve that result.

Re: Anyone voting tomorrow?

To be fair on the campaign front,  it's no suprise there's a lack of personal visits and/or fliers given the size of the areas represented.
It's perfectly fine to spoil a ballot,  and if enough people do so it may give them a hint!   (but I wouldn't hold your breath)

Re: Anyone voting tomorrow?

I think it's all a load of balls if you ask me.
We're suffering one cut after another yet them plebs in Downing St continue to find ways of spending money on themselves and their rich chums creating more highly paid jobs that we apparently can't afford.
They then tell us the national debt keeps growing and we must all cut back and work harder?  Crazy
And no, we didn't get any leaflets or any advertising about it either.

We got one flier a few days ago (from the candidate I'd have been least inclined to vote for).

Re: Anyone voting tomorrow?

I voted last week using a postal vote as I'm in hospital. We got a brief resume of each of the 5 candidates and there were also details of them all on the website but this wasn't very detailed.
Some of the candidates did hold public meetings in Essex but none in my part.

Good luck with that, artmo. A neighbour had a new hip a couple of years ago. Used a stick for a while then was back to his usual self walking, driving etc, without, seemingly, any problems.
