As if work life isn’t busy enough.
Your in-tray is stacked, we’re on a short working week because of the Bank Holiday, and who in their right mind wants to haul themselves along to a community centre or a primary school on a midweek day to put a tick in a box anyway?
I mean – it’s not like your view is going to change the verdict is it?
Let’s face it, polling day is quite possibly a long way from a priority for a lot of us, but there are more than enough societies in the world who would kill to have the opportunity to input on a political decision such as this.
As it happens, I’m far from being a political animal, and despite a birthday on International Women’s Day, I’m not much of a bra-burning feminist either.
That said, I still made the trip to vote today, and I’m proud to have said I’ve done so.
The reality is – particularly as women – we voiced loud enough and campaigned hard enough all those decades ago that we wanted the right.
Today we have a chance to exercise that right and to add our view (however passive) to a national debate.
Why wouldn’t you?
Oh…and on an aside….How long does everyone think it’ll be before we can make our vote count via a smartphone app?
Something tells me that’s not so far off…
