European Members - Voting?

Just wondering - the rest of the EU folk here - are you bothering to vote?

Just did myself, although unlike previous times there wasn't even any canvasser's outside the station trying to get your vote at the last minute. Seems like even the parties are apathetic.

I voted by post a few days ago. The way I see it, if you don't vote you can't complain later on.

Just back from the ballot-box.

I dutch there a saying : "Wie zwijgt , stemt toe." , meaning : "Who keeps silent , agrees."
Never stay silent about the issues you don't agree with.
