The burning question: Do you think your vote counts?
Of course it counts. If you don't vote someone else will make your decision for you. I'd spoil a vote if I felt no candidate in my area represented me. It's important to actively register your disaffection. I don't believe voter apathy is the fault of the politicians. Correct voting procedure
- Read the instructions at top of Ballot Paper, which state:-
“Write 1 in the box beside the candidate of your first choice, write 2 in the box beside the candidate of your second choice, and so on”.
- There are 16 candidates in the Constituency of Kerry in the 2016 General Election.
- Any other marking on your ballot paper may invalidate your vote.
- Do not write anything other than your numerical preference on the ballot paper.
