VOTE! BLOODY DO IT!
It’s the day people! And this post is a final plea to get anyone who might read this to quickly take those 5/10 minutes out of their day to pop down to your local voting poll and fill out that form! Please!
Now more than ever, we as a nation need to stand up and contribute to society! We are all responsible for this country and need to work together to pull it back together so that we can help the rest of the world!
Now I have my opinions, hell I’ve already voted (postal), but I’m going to do my best not to make this biased, but if you still haven’t thought about it or were planning on not voting, PLEASE PLEASE! I’m not going to give the grown-up lecture about how people died for the right to vote (however, it’s still a valid point!) but just remind you that if you’re one of the people who’s sighing at current events or devastated by the world that we’re currently living in, YOU HAVE THE CHANCE TO HELP STOP IT!
Yes your arguments are valid, that one person’s vote may not be very significant, but it just might be. What if everyone who planned on not voting today, suddenly changed their mind. What if each of those votes was the deciding vote for that area. And what if, by those votes enabling certain individuals a seat in The House of Commons, did those people fight for something that might just turn everything around.
It really takes no time at all, no effort (It’s literally writing a cross, I mean come on) and it might, just might, make a huge difference. Surely anything, anything can be better than what the nation and the world is like at the moment. It needs all of us to care enough to vote. That means you too!
If you’re still undecided, here are a few links to help you decide without trawling through each manifesto, literally having a quick read will take 10 minutes max and will give you some more knowledge;
ISideWith – this was the one I did and was pretty good! Very in depth!

So please, please please get yourself down to the polling station, quickly fill it out and then treat yourself to a nice cuppa! If you’re registered then you will have received a ballot paper with all the instructions on, but you basically just put a cross next to the name of the person/party you wish to elect as representative for your area and pop it in the box and you’re done!
So who’s planning to vote? Or has been hella proactive and already done it?
