Since I’m going to be working all day on polling day, I’ve applied for a postal vote.
Which hadn’t arrived by this morning’s post, because I didn’t leave home till the postman had been.
So, I phoned the elections office to ask where my vote was and what I can do about it, and apparently it was posted to me a fortnight ago. Not to worry, councillor, if you turn up at the Guildhall tomorrow with photo-ID and something with your address on, we’ll issue you with an emergency ballot.
Which is all very well, and quite reassuring that I will actually get a vote…
… except that somehow, my postal vote turned up at my house inbetween me leaving and my other half getting home.
Where has it been for 14 days?
