This is the last election blog entry before the polls close for the 2005 general election.
Despite the fact that I'm in a really safe constituency I really like elections. Something about the way it is all low tech and we still get to know the results in a few hours. Then if you stay up late you may get to see one of those Portillo moments. Just fab. I'm not sure what would count as a Portillo moment in this election. Perhaps Eric Martlew being beaten or obviously any of the leaders of the main parties, but Eric would be special.
I also love the way that so many people actually walk to the polling stations I have never seen the street so full of pedestrians, with neighbours actually meeting each other and talking to each other.
