  3. I did, I did! No I'm not a goody goody really, it just so happens I pass the polling station on the way to work, so I popped in, but I have to admit if I hadn't seen the large sign I may not have done!!!!

  4. go girl! you see this is what I'm talking about - apathy is an insult to all those men and women who fought so hard to get their vote - imagine if someone said their great great grandchildren just couldn't be bothered to use it! What a betrayal! I had to laugh though - in our little village hall I was given two slips... the local election two choices ... the european election.. a sheet like loo paper full of people I've never heard of before! The beautiful boy comes along and puts the cross in the right box for me.. I'm training him already!

  7. I did too! Good that you made this reminder, I totally agree that this is a democratic right which we have to appreciate. I think here in the Netherlands about 40% of the voters actually vote, but they all complain!

  8. I certainly did! We can't complain if we can't be bothered to vote can we!

  10. Yes, yesterday we were voting in the netherlands; 36 % voters and the outcome is....a slap in the face of the sitting government...I will follow the rest of European voters. Did you hear Obaha speech in Cairo and pronounce one of his 7 issues to be women's rights/équality? So good of you to remind us women HOW and through what persistents the women in the west have won their rights !! Never to forget and never to stop appreciating by voting, for one thing. Bless you.

    OMGoodness, I just finished the book The Woman's Century, in which there was a chapter on these ladies and their fight for the vote.

  12. I did....I have to say I always do, I think it is our duty after other women died getting us the vote.
