With election day fast creeping us, this is the lite thread for everyone less glued up on politics.

Most importantly - if you're old enough to vote GO OUT and make a difference, please! While I probably disagree a lot with people ideology, I think we can all agree that young people need to vote - it's the only way things will change!

But aside from that gear up for the excitement / non-excitement.

Fully expecting there to be lots of voting selfies about - but Facebook are putting a 'I have voted' button tomorrow that was used during the 2012 US Election.

I didn't post my vote in time so I'm having to take it down to my local polling station tomorrow.

The I have voted button was used during the Referendum too.

I'm voting before work tomorrow. Bring it on!

I too have voted, Alliance for me. Which makes no difference given it's a safe Sinn Fein seat but whatever.

Voted for the first time, yay! I voted Labour, my family all voted Green. Oops. (Ours is a safe Labour seat anyway)

My mum almost voted UKIP too, but I managed to (verbally) BASH some sense into her before we went in. I think she voted DUP in the end, which is scarcely any better.

My two sisters and brothers all voted Alliance as well, so a good result all in all.

I voted Conservative!

I also did that poll that's been floating the round on social media earlier and came out with a Labour/Conservative split. Weird! I like policies from both parties, but the Tories swing it economically for me.

Due to the lack of obscure left-wing militant communist lesbian revolution candidates, I ended up voting Green. I'm sure she'll hold onto her seat, I assume the BIN FIASCO might dent the Green presence on the council in Brighton though.

Voted Labour. I did some of those online poll/quiz things to see how my views match each of the parties, Green came out on top, with Labour in 2nd, Lib Dem 3rd, Tories 4th and UKIP last. I checked the results of the last few elections, and it's been ~40% Tory to about ~35% Labour with Lib Dem a distant 3rd. In my area, it was only those 5 parties that I could vote for, so I decided not to vote for Green (as realistically, I don't see them getting the seat) and plumped for Labour in the hope they'll get the seat instead of the Conservatives!

I did the same, would have voted Green but no chance in getting in, so went for the best-placed opposition, which is Lib Dem, to get the smug Tory out.

A friend made his mind up on the spot when he saw the ballot papers, it was purely voting against all the established major parties as opposed to any actual belief in policies from the others, and I suspect a lot of people will be doing that. One or two parties in particular have been evasive, bland, negative and shameless in their roles in the current state of the country and most of all taken the electorate to be idiots. We are entering an era of coalitions because it'll take a generation for them to be trusted again. If they were handing their homework in to teacher they would be getting a "See me"....

We had both a local and general election vote where I live so I did one for Labour and one for Green, torn between them both - I think they're both the only two parties with the correct values
