I have never been one for politics, and on more than one occasion I have had my fair moan about the way things are, so this election I am voting.

Who I vote for is personal, I have voted based on pure reading, not followed any of the discussions or news reports. I read through all the parties key points and looked deeper into specific areas I wish to know more about, mainly items that may have a direct or partial impact on my life and family. Now I have a young family it’s my right to take part and make my vote count, some folk may say no point in voting as it’s not going make a difference, but imagine if a majority of people did that then what’s the point of an election. Yes, your vote might not help with the seat in your area, but by adding your vote you can be assured you did you part and you had your vote!
