Voting in the Victoria Hall - 3/5/07

I took my camera when I went to vote last week, and took this snap without asking permission. Mr Cope on the left gently told me off, but was mollified when I explained that I was recording for posterity!

As well as being a regular as polling officer, Roger is also a stalwart member of the local coastguard. Should a massive power cut happen over the north of Scotland he would probably be found stationed at the Eathie transmitter, relaying messages from the main coastguard centre in Aberdeen throughout the Highlands.

And Calum, I believe that taking a photograph within the bounds of a polling staion is still one of the few crimes you can still be hanged for!

Evidence of how confusing those ballot papers were - some voters didn't even know what month it was!

Garve - apparently taking photos within a polling station is OK, but taking a photo of a ballot paper ensures that you are hung, drawn and quartered....

Err I snapped my Ballot paper as well. So that's me doomed, and I'll see you all on Gallows Hill next weekend. However looking at my skills with dates, with a bit of luck I'll miss my own execution.

(I've changed the date - embarrassed of Church Street)
