Just curious really.

We always do postal voting. I know that if I had to go in person I'd end up not getting there, getting caught up doing something else and forgetting. So I send a postal vote off a few days before. I would love to be able to do it online ideally.

postal for the same reason as you ie to make sure that I don't forget or not get around to getting to the polling station on the day.

In person.

I find the whole thing rather exciting and it makes me feel like a grown-up hmm grin

I go to a polling station. I would never, ever, remember to post a form in time. And there's the chance of someone nicking your vote (has happened in several places over the past few years - one big case in Birmingham).

Quite like going along and putting my vote in the ballot box. All the staff were very friendly to ds, telling him they'd see him next year.

(My parents used to canvass so suppose polling stations remind me of my youth...)

In person. If I posted it the post box is next to the polling station and I walk past the polling station four times a day anyway.

My DH did a postal vote. I had a postal vote but <don't flame me> I did not vote.

In person, have just walked dd down and given her a lecture talk about why women should vote.

I get a buzz from voting.
