Lifetime supply of democracy

That's another x in the box. I've voted in 5 general elections, three European elections and 6 local elections in the last 18 years. At the same rate and given average life expectancy I can expect to make another 31 crosses. That's real participation!

As usual none of the choices were particularly palatable. And never having lived in a marginal seat my vote counts for little anyway.
