Daily View 2×2: 4 June 2009

Today is polling day, which means scores of Lib Dems across the country will be having an exhausting day from Good Morning leaflets before dawn right through to election count verifications beyond midnight.

Good morning!

We’ll be reminding people of the all important facts about the electoral process:

  • You do not need your polling card to vote (but it might speed things up a bit if you have it)
  • Polls are open from 7am to 10pm
  • If you had a postal vote, but haven’t returned it yet, don’t put it in the post, but take it along to your local polling station.  You can’t have another ballot paper, so the one that was sent to you was all important.
  • The returning officer now has more discretion than previously to put right obvious mistakes, so if something wrong happens, get in touch with your district / unitary council’s elections office.

And of course we’ll be standing on our record, reminding you of three key things, pointing out we’re stronger together, poorer apart, and hoping for a good outcome at the end of the day.

All the very best to all of you from all of us, and we’ll meet back here tomorrow (World Environment Day, natch) to see how things went and celebrate and commiserate.
