Are you a registered voter and have you voted?

Not sure how you can define whether my decision was right or wrong... there are too many factors involved in it.

I have voted, twice now, though one was European parliament elections and I really wasnt fussed about who got in there.

No, this is what I meant my South African friend:

Not enough definition in it for my mind, which was forced by psychology to be picky about tests ;)

Yeah I agree with Shadow and tex, often you don't vote for the "right" or "wrong" person, because in most cases, you're voting for someone who you think is the right person. Your definitions are very inadequate to get a real feel for how people vote. If I vote for someone and think he's just great, that doesn't mean I voted for the "right" person.

Are we trying to come up with excuses for why we once voted Labour? :D

never voted, really cant see the point in voting for a national organisation that i have no say in, my local mp is bound by the national party and is therefore incapable of representing the local population so what is the point. Realistically in the UK we elect a president when we are meant to be electing people to represent our local interests at a national level and are given no means to object to this other than voting for a random independant as protest- but that is a wasted vote more so than a none vote as randomly voting has no meaning whatsoever and is a dangerous idea.
