Who cannot vote?
"people who have a severe mental illness and are unable to understand the voting procedure."
Wrong thread, but as an aside, not sure what I'm thinking about the latest issue in the convert household. My wife works for a charity that supports adults with severe learning difficulties. Coming across her desk on Friday was a leaflet from Mencap explaining the rights of those with learning difficulties to vote and how they should be supported in doing so. All worthy stuff and for those with mild issues eminently sensible. But for some.....the images in my head would not go down well with some of the PC brigade that work there. I can just see some centre manager feeling honour bound to wheel the centre's residents down for a day trip to the polling booth. I can categorically say in the odd hour that I spend weekly supporting a lad down there I've never had conversations about worldly issues. Fortunately I only go down there at the weekend & polling day is mid week so not my concern. I guess he will not be the only constituent without a lot of knowledge to make his mark. I'm sure common sense will prevail.
