What happened to the policeman being present at Polling Stations?

There was no one asking who I had voted for at the Polling station I used.
There has been no one door knocking for any party, we have had leaflets through the letterbox, but you cannot ask a leaflet any pertinent questions.

It seems like those putting up for election can't be bothered in seeking out votes.
This doesn't bode well for whoever does get elected does it?

My flyer says you don't need a polling card, just give your name and address.
I bet that system is abused in some sectors of Accrington.
I passed a polling station on Blackburn road this afternoon.
It looked like a terraced house and there were a few swathy looking dark skinned "gentlemen" stood guarding the door. I bet I know who wins in at that ward.

Perhaps they can't find their way around Hyndburn , Margaret .

I have just heard something I haven't heard in a long time .

A car has just passed my house with loudhailers on top .

The person in the car was asking us to vote for Mr Ayub , the Labour candidate for the Central Ward .

But I live in Spring Hill Ward .

Seems that these politicians don't know their way around Hyndburn .

None of the candidates for the general election have shown their faces either.
Usually the various councillors for the parties canvas for the local election and also promote the candidate for the general election too....But nothing.

In years gone by, the polling stations were visited by members of the various party teams and if you had not been and cast a vote they would offer you a lift to the polling station to encourage you to vote for their candidate....this doesn't happen anymore now.

We had a visit from the Baxenden Conservative local candidate - but that is all. The Green Party went straight past - very surprised that we didn't get a visit from any Labour hopeful:rolleyes:

What short memories the people of Hyndburn have got.

True, but if UKIP had not got all those votes......

On the bright side, at lease Cmon will have another 5 years where he can copy and paste about the government, after all Ed could do no wrong.
