Just in case you haven't been watching the TV news or reading your newspaper over the last couple of days the you will hear it first here. The General Election is on May 6. OK, you knew that.
Not going to vote, can't be bothered, it's not worth the effort walking down to the Poling Station and getting asked as you leave the church, school, village hall etc which way you vote by that group of persistent people who always hang about outside poling stations on election day. You'd think they didn't have anything better to do. What do they do in the 5 years between election days, hibernate?
Anyway, this year you don't need to bother with all that hassle. You can register to vote by post. All you need to do is visit this site, Postal Vote Application, fill in the form you can download and post it to your local electoral head person and a few day before the election you post you voting paper with it's little cross to the same person. Do it now or some time in the next week because it has to be done before 20 April. Otherwise the long walk down to the Poling Station for you.
