So it looks like I'm going to get the chance to exercise of my democratic rights twice this year. The smart money seems to be on a Referendum in June to decide the UK's future in the EU or lack thereof, and just before that on May 5th (anniversary of Napoleon's death and my mother's birth) we get to choose who will represent us in Stormont. You may be tempted to Google the latter, but it's really not worth it and the information will be unhelpful at best. And if I nip across the border in the Irish Republic and rent a flat I'll be able to vote in the Irish general election which is expected to be called for later this month. After all this voting I don't think I'll have the energy for America's presidential election at the end of the year.

@ladyduck I'd be most annoyed if I lived in a country and paid my tax there but couldn't vote. Still, it saves you the bother of having to think of what to wear for the vote! That's my daughter's biggest problem - what do you wear to vote?
