well, it's all the media is talking about now and will be until may. politics is in fresh and revitalised form, people are backing away from the traditional three parties and opting for fringe parties such as the greens and alas ukip

will you be voting in may? who will you be voting for? what do you predict the result to be ohmy.gif

At present I'm about 80% sure I'm voting Green and 20% sure I'm voting Labour (I currently live in Caroline Lucas's seat and she's fabulous).

Haven't got the foggiest what the actual result will be but I guess that's part of the 'fun' of election night.

I never reveal who I vote for in any election. And I'm currently undecided.

I am pretty set on voting for Labour. I have a few reasons for doing so, I'm in a Labour-held constituency already, and I'm broadly agreeing with them a lot these days. And my preference at the end of it would either be a Labour majority or a hung parliament with them at the forefront of a coalition. I don't think I would ever spend a vote on a fringe party honestly, not while we have FPTP.

Secondarily, unlike everyone else, or at least it seems that way, I have been quite impressed with Ed Miliband up to this point, he comes across honestly to me, which is a big contrast to the other main political figures of today.

Agreed on the fun of election night. Currently I am dead set on hoping I have no exam on the Friday so I can stay up and watch it coming in.

i find all this stick ed gets about being bumbling/uncharismatic/unlikeable ridiculous. it feels really driven by the right wing media and has now entered the public subconscious. they are no reflection on how he would lead this country and david cameron/george osbourne are hardly more charismatic and likeable.

i really hope we don't end up having 10 years of cameron. what is his legacy from the first 5 years exactly? i feel as if it's a government that achieved nothing...

As a fully paid up member of the SNP so I will be voting for them. As long as the Tories and UKIP don't get in I'm ok with the result. If the two I don't want get in then there is a serious shot we won't have to vote in the next election!

Love me a silver lining!!

I am not sure whether I will be voting or not. On the one hand I probably 'should' exercise my right to vote. On the other hand I do not have an educated opinion on any of the parties. (Also I'm not sure how you register to vote anyway).

If I do vote I imagine it'll be for Labour because of Tirren's propaganda.

"You’ll need your National Insurance number (if you have one)."

Yeah this part is gonna be a problem unless you have a handy link for that as well. I think I had my National Insurance number on a piece of paper which I lost many many months ago.

Yes like Jake said that's only a telephone call away (plus if you're applyig for Student Finance you'll need it for that as well so two birds, one stone and all that).

I'm not sure this time, usually I would vote DUP because they are the only viable option where I live, however as a party they have done a great many things I am fully against in the last few years (not least leading the charge against SSM and equality and many stupid, backward decisions designed to appeal to the stupidly uber ridiculous rural heartland of NI). I might not vote at all, it won't matter in terms of Westminster elections as I live in Mid Ulster and Sinn Fein have a massive majority (well not so much now that McGuinness is gone, but enough that it's going to be hard to overcome).

Will probably end up voting Alliance if I do, don't agree with them on everything but socially they are about the only party here remotely on the same wavelength as me.

Will try to get that sorted ASAP then! I'd had the number for 2 years already and never actually needed it for anything yet so I didn't realise it was such a priority.

Do you live in Reading West? If so, you need to vote.
