Vote counting next week!

Next Thursday – 12th December – is when the United Kingdom will have its next General Election, and once again I will play a small but important role in making it happen.

For some years now I have taken part in the counting of votes in Leicester, and I have just received all the details and my official badge for doing so again next week.

It means turning up as the count centre (a sports hall in central Leicester) at about 9.30 pm and staying there until the results are announced, which could be as late as 4.00 am on Friday.

Leicester has three constituencies (West, South and East) which are all safe Labour seats. It will, however, be interesting to see how well the other parties do.

Stalin once said that the people who cast the votes decide nothing, but the people who count the votes decide everything! I will try not to let power go to my head!
