Trinny in Jozi

Election fervour, or not…

with 6 comments

Was rather disappointed not to be able to vote on Wednesday, owing to my ID book´s propensity not to be in the same country as its owner.  I´ll have to leave it to the rest of you lot to cast your ballots wisely this coming week. 

But after I took the M&G´s poll predictor, I realised perhaps it was a good thing that I couldn´t have my say. According to the test, I should be voting for the DA or the IFP. Quite a shock to discover what I believe I believe isn´t actually what I do believe. The only fact I´m proud of is that I didn´t agree with the FFP on any of their policies. But then, who does?

At least COPE was my third option. And since it´s a proudly South African tradition not to consider policy when chosing for whom to vote, I reckon I would´ve stuck by them, cognitive dissonance be damned! Who are you voting for on Wednesday? Or is it a secret?

  1. Were you registered to vote? DHL does ID books…

  2. Ja, I was registered. Faxed off the form and everything. But only realised I didn´t have it the evening before voting 😦

  3. Cheer up, my third and fourth options were a tie between UDM and Freedom Front Plus!

    My top option was ID though, which is better 🙂

  5. But you told me months ago that you didn’t have your ID book and that you hadn’t registered last year. Use an emergency ticket and come back tomorrow for a day…

  6. I can´t have told you that, cos it´s not true… Didn´t change my registration to Jozi, but was registered in Grahamstown, even checked last year. And faxed off my forms so I was registered in Dubai as well.

    And I definitely had my ID book before I left home, if only I´d thought to bring it with me!

    Unfortunately don´t have funds/time for emergency ticket, even if my ID book wasn´t buried in the depth of Mim and Pim´s storage somewhere (your house?).

    Vote for me tomorrow 😉
