Hopefully as many people in London as possible will take the opportunity to send a message of disapproval to the disastrous Labour Government via today's European Parliament election.
We have converted this (.pdf) table into a more easily searchable web page:
Some political campaigners have already been complaining that the lengthy Ballot Paper has been "razor folded" deliberately, supposedly to try to make it harder for certain parties to be noticed.
Presumably they are relying on illiterate voters with a short attention span, using some sort of random "lucky dip" approach to voting, who will somehow not bother to examine and read the whole of the Ballot Paper.
There were mixed reports of turnout and the Electoral Commission was forced to issue an alert asking polling station staff not to fold ballot papers.
This followed complaints parties listed lower on the alphabetical ballot papers were hidden when first unfolded.
The spokesman, who explained that ballot papers were folded to help protect voter secrecy, said they were also urging people to read the instructions on ballot papers carefully.
Pick your party list or independent candidates before you enter the polling station !
