So yes, it’s election day. Since our dissertations are due shortly, most of our student household had been up all night working. So, at 0645 this morning, we left the house, sleepily stumbling our way towards the polling booth in our pygamas.

After waiting in line for 7 minutes, possibly scaring the staff a little and impressing on everyone that THESE students weren’t apathetic, we successfully cast our votes and stumbled off home again. We were the first to vote at our polling station and I suppose possibly the first in Bath.

Democratic right exercised, I promptly fell asleep. Probably a good idea as tonight we’ll have another sleepless night waiting for the results to come in.
