I got my card - but am amazed that you dont need photo ID. When I vote in Ireland, I need my card, and a photo ID. Even though I know most of the people at the polling station, they still have to check my passport etc..
This system here isnt secure at all.
I have seen someone trying to rig an election in the past, even caught him red handed on the day of a local election. Thats why its SO important to have ID introduced when voting!! Luckily I was able to report him to the director of elections immediately - I was only a kid myself at the time - its still strikes me as bad - that so called politicians can get away with such deviousness. This man is still active in politics, but I have passed my story on to enough of the right people. I don't think he knows it was me that did it though. He does wonder why I don't give him the time of day - definately not wasting it on him - only when I know I need to keep a beedy eye on him.
People like him, give a terrible name to the politicians who actually care. Its rubbish, because any other politician whom I know, are fab and actually passionate about what they do!! I always thought it would be something I would like to do, but its a tough job, its definately not a 9-5, and I dont think, no matter how much I would like to help people, that I would like to be having a quiet drink and have people approach me with their woes constantly. It also seems like a very draining career - mentally!! On the other hand, I would love to go and stand up to those awful politiicans who are milking the system, and just want their pictures in the papers!
