I did but hope I did the right thing tactically. There were several independent candidates but I’ve never heard of them.

Same here, I think the turn out will be better than expected. There were quite a few people queueing when we were there. Know what you mean about tactics, Any pro remain vote has to be good, but Lib Dem has the biggest chance. Here's hoping.

We had a family outing (apart from Tom who is 17 today). Biggest ballot paper I've ever seen.

I did but nearly didn't as I had no idea what to do for the best.

Perhaps today's resignation should have come yesterday as I might have swayed some votes!

No, none of them deserve it.
So you, will get what you are given. There should be a law to strike people off the electoral role, if they fail to vote and do not show reasonable cause. Alternatively, make it an offence, with £1000 pound fine if someone fails to vote.

The ballot papers should have a "None of the Above Box", That would ensure people at least make the effort.

Sorry, but there you have it!

If the ballot paper had a "none of the above" box, and should that box get a majority then the seat would remain empty, then I would have dragged myself across burning coals to get to the polling station and put my cross in it.

Not voting for socialist parties like Greens, Libdems, Labour, not voting for useless self-serving backstabbers aka the Tories, not voting for Farage or the Farage-lite running UKIP. Whose left on the ballot, the English Democrats? Whoever tf they are. The last thing we need is another Parliament, so they can't have my vote either.

Why should you have to vote? It's a choice. Anyway since 98% of them have proved how incompetent British politicians are then I'm more than happy to have my voting right revoked. Why? Because it makes SFA difference as they just lie every time they speak.

Me either as above, none of them are any use and I really don't see what difference it makes having MEP's.
They can't sort out the pathetic way things have got here anyway.

I did. I must confess I couldn't decide who to vote for, but I knew who I wouldn't vote for... I'm going with mine being a tactical vote but I don't know if it will have made a difference how I'd like. I don't usually vote tactically and it was almost an unconscious decision having read all the "vote tactically to benefit remain" articles... I'm generally of the view that you vote who you would want, but I accept that it's difficult if you're looking at voting for a distant 3rd in a FPTP system - in that case I might consider "lesser of two evils" tactical voting.

"and should that box get a majority then the seat would remain empty," As if that is ever likely to happen! And do you not think the changes made by Electoral Governance, would take into account various possible outcomes?

"Me either as above, none of them are any use and I really don't see what difference it makes having MEP's.

And you're just blowing off! The situation is far more complex than that, although I agree with the "Pathetic" observation - in so much at is the Electorate, and more so those who comment on political issues, yet cant be arsed to vote.

"Why should you have to vote? It's a choice. Anyway since 98% of them have proved how incompetent British politicians are then I'm more than happy to have my voting right revoked."

And that is a very comfortable position to take, given, Politically, you will never be asked to demonstrate your competence, or otherwise.

In all things we cant always have our first choice. We often have to settle for an alternative. In this instance, at least you made a conscious choice.
