Default UK Ballot Papers

Ours arrived late yesterday afternoon, and are now on their way back. Looks like some councils at least are getting them out with a reasonable chance to get them back in time.

I've just realised having voted in every General Election for the past 50 years, this will be my last. Unless this one doesn't produce a clear result, I doubt there will be another one before the 15 year time limit rules me out.

If Boris gets a majority and his Brexit deal done then the Tories might finally get the long promised ‘Votes for Life’ Bill through the next Parliament.

I was surprised to find mine came with an international postage paid envelope too.

It was interesting to have a ballot paper with only the 3 main parties listed. The last time I voted in my local elections, there were a few more parties listed.

Lots of parties are standing aside to give those with similar Brexit ideology more chance of winning the seat.

Brexit party not standing against against conservatives.

And the most likely winner of green, liberal democrats and plaid cymru...

Probably quite likely in this case - Green and Brexit Parties standing aside for the Lib Dems and Tories.

I also think that a lot of the real fringe parties, like the 'raving monster loonies' have had enough of elections with so many in short order that they just can't afford to lose another deposit.
