That was a long day! From eight in the morning to eight at night, candidates and supporters stood by the Parish Hall door, suffering from both sunburn and exposure thanks to the rather variable weather. The flow of voters never stopped and some had to queue for up to half an hour before getting their time in the booth. To all those who took the trouble, thank you!
Thanks, as well, to all the volunteers who made the day possible, from the Honorary Police to the many Adjoints and to the Parish staff. Their day ended at three in the morning..
The count took another two and a half hours and by ten thirty we had our results: Kirsten Morel, who beat me by three hundred votes, and I would be the next two Deputies for St Lawrence.
