Weekend elections? Vote y/n here…
I like voting on a Thursday. The reason for voting on a Thursday isn’t very obvious, but I can’t think of a better day. The Ministry of Justice though are looking for reasons to move elections to the weekend or not.
They’ve opened a consultation today on weekend voting and they’re looking for input from stakeholders (but not really the public) on their proposals.
Weekend voting just doesn’t feel right. I can’t see the upsides of moving the day. How about you?
