"Despite the cynicism many of us feel about both sides of the campaign, despite the leaders treating us like idiots and despite the general malaise in our political system – today’s election, like every election, is an important day that we should never fail to appreciate – not because of the quality of the choices we have on offer, but simply because we, unlike so many others, actually have a choice. As we said on the morning of the 2007 election:
So go and do your part for our democracy – man the booths, assist the booth workers or simply just exercise your franchise. This day is our day, your day, the day where that little piece of paper and its accompanying little pencil make all of us equal."
