I never realised there was a whole rule book for voting but thanks to this article I’m now fully informed! Apologies to the journalist that spent hours crafting his submission only to have it wrecked in rhyme (or maybe not) 🙂 Herewith the Does and Don’ts of Voting!
So don’t go taking selfies in the poll booth
Nor making any hullabaloo
For the mark that your making is simply
The one that’s the best fit for you
And don’t turn up dressed like a politician
With a rosette as big as your head
Nor chit chat all speak so political
For that will turn faces all red
Or should we say for political correctness
They’ll turn yellow or green or just blue
Or purple or pink, how you like it
Like we said it’s the best fit for you!
And if you want your dog to join in the party
(The poll booth, not political group)
You can take them along for the jolly
Just so long as you pick up their poop
Though for ponies and other such livestock
Leave them tethered outside for it’s true
That although we love them very muchly
Feel your vote is the best fit for you!
So hop along and cast your vote quickly
With a cross in the box on your own
Then head to the pub for a bevvy
You probably won’t be alone
And don’t tweet out your choice just in case of
A fracas and a legal to-do
For voting has been declared private
Like we said, the best fit that’s for you!
