    Because a Postal vote is for those who are not able to vote in their own constituency (for a good reason) - Islanders are able to and do. Postal votes are the exception, not the rule.

    I was never fully happy with the integrity of the postal vote and the secrecy of the ballot.

    Why? Some countries send out the postal ballot papers to everybody and have something like 30% postal vote. Enfranchise people. Make it as easy as possible to vote.

    Mary Lou has a touch of Mary Harney in her. Perhaps the rear ramp of the Casa may be of more use...
