Pity I hadn’t logged on to Riotact to see the 100 metre piece of string debate. I might have been tempted to bring one along with me this morning, just to stir the possum.
Voting in Dickson was a very laid back, first world experience. My nuclear family walked past well mannered volunteers handing out how to vote cards who were a good 100 metres from the polling booths; citizens lining up in an orderly, yet purposeful way. Electoral officers used 21st century technology to identify me and cross me off the roll, and I voted with ease. Our local member, Andrew Barr, dressed as if for a Sunday BBQ was there, talking to the media scrum of one. And it all went very, very well.
Anyone else had other experiences today?
[ED – It will be very interesting to see if knocking out duplicated votes has any effect]
