Bosmere: mess with tradition at your peril!

Back in Needham Market for a second stint of telling, I am again the sole visible presence here at the Christchurch Halls, the town's usual polling station.

I say 'usual' because, breaking with tradition, we have a second polling station at the offices of the District Council, a fact which has caused a few voters to turn up at the wrong polling station. It just goes to show that you shouldn't mess with tradition...

Unexpectedly, the 'evening rush hour' hasn't been as busy as I had expected. We'll still have done good business though, and it warms the heart to see so many people say that it's their moral duty to vote when I thank them for doing so.
