one take on the polls today

In the words of one of the commentors:

This is probably the most succinct, accurate? and hilarious summary? of the campaign.

The apathy I heard and saw today while waiting after completing my own vote was heartbreaking and especially sad given the apparent closeness of the expected outcome. I would normally have expected a close election to fascinate more than bore. But still there were people more interested in finding out if they’d get fined for not voting because <insert excuse here> than in exercising a democratic right only afforded once every three or so years, despite their influence on our lives.

It certainly wasn’t an awe inspiring campaign but surely the closeness should engender interest? No?
