Umpire 2 please grow up. Who are you to tell people when they can vote. As the story says, there have been queues all day and some people work 12 hour shifts. In my polling station there were only 2 staff and 2 booths to go to put the X. It couldn't cope with the voters, especially when there are 2 ballots in most places. The councils knew there was going to be a higher turn out for this election and the polling stations should have been prepared. In Merseyside it has been reported that they ran out of voting forms. How can that happen? Scandalous.
