Today is of course referendum day. Many of you have postal voted already, but for those voting in person, now is the time!
I am very much looking forward to today being over so that I can talk about something else! I have some great posts about Iceland coming up, starting Saturday.
Some reasons to vote
Sometimes it might feel like it is not worth voting. However, there are some great reasons to make the effort today.
First, the result is on a knife edge. It is predicted to be incredibly close; closer than any vote we have seen foe a long time. With such fine margins, you vote will make more of a difference than ever.
Second, everyone else is doing it. YouGov are predicting we could see one of the highest turnouts for any vote in the last few decades (save the Scottish referendum). As a society, we really are all making the effort to get out there and vote.
Third, the consequences of this are huge. It is not just five years of one set of politicians before we vote again. It would be a most uncomfortable feeling for the future of our society having gone the other way than you wanted it, without having a say in it. At least if you vote you can say “don’t blame me – I voted x!”
If you are still not sure which way to vote in the referendum, that’s fine. But consider this: if we vote remain, we can always choose to leave at a later date. A vote for leave is far less reversible.
