Observe early, observe often

Alan in Belfast is encouraging people to sign up as election observers and interestingly notes you no longer have to ‘respect the sovereignty of the United Kingdom’ to get the pass. You can read his previous blog on his experience as an observer at the European elections.

I’ve observed a few elections myself (though as poacher, not gamekeeper), it’s an interesting experience for any political anorak and I’d encourage all nerds to experience it once. Plus – we’d love extra content to leech off come election time
