10 years ago today, I did not vote…

Since I have been eligible to vote, I have only missed voting twice; in honour of the women who fought for votes for women.

The first time I missed voting was being I was away at university and had an exam on Election Day. My Dad who as had been sent a form ‘as head of the household’ to confirm who was eligible to vote; failed to get me a postal vote. After women fought, to get votes for women; men still have power over women, in terms of voting.

The second time, I failed to vote, was 10years ago today. I was in hospital 3 hours away with a broken leg. I had, had a metal rod inserted but, it had not been stitched together as it was too swollen. So think, that is a pretty good excuse not to vote. Sorry Millicent, Emmiline and the other suffragettes.

I will be voting on Thursday in the election for the new post of Mayor of South Yorkshire. This is a similar role to London mayor currently held by Sadiq Khan; previously held by Ken Liverstone and Borris Johnston.
