Voting was very slow in Holywood at just after seven this morning. Often there’s a bit of a rush there as the early birds make sure of their vote. Well, amongst the old timers anyway who remember the time when if you didn’t get out early, someone else would snaffle your vote! Amongst the early risers was Trevor Ringland and his son Michael. As Sylvia Hermon told reporters yesterday, it’s crucial she gets her vote out – especially in strongholds like Holywood. If not, it’s conceiveable even she could have difficulty holding her seat!
