Today is Election Day, the day we can exercise our right to vote and decide on who will be in parliament for the next three years! It really seems a little pointless as National is most likely to romp back in to power.
After teaching music classes today I went with my mum and Aonghas to cast our votes. There was a polling booth at the school I teach, and that's where Hamish was working as an 'Issuing Officer', handing out voting forms to people.
Hamish didn't serve me but he served my mum. There were quite a few of them there! Aonghas and I voted in neighbouring booths, and even when I got to the booth I still hadn't decided which party I'd give my party vote to!
I ended up making a decision, but I won't declare how I voted here! As for whether I wanted to keep MMP or not, I voted to keep it. I really didn't have a chance to read up on the alternatives!
I really do want Labour to win, but I doubt they will (oops did I just reveal my political leanings?)
