Polling station, in unnamed location in Scotland (?) posted on Twitter during the referendum on Scotland independence, but around since at least April 2014. From @standrewsradio
“Please do not sit on the fence.”
It would work in Texas elections this year, too. 97% of eligible Scot voters registered to vote; as I write this, it looks like about 90% of those people voted in the election.
Ain’t democracy grand?
“Vote: It’s what citizens do.”
Update: Seems to be at the Plaistow Youth Center, in England.
BBC caption: After four weeks of campaigning the polls are closed, we now await the result of the general election. Quentin Gadd spotted these signs at a polling station, he says, “Is this proof positive that the organisers of the Plaistow Youth Centre are taking a stand against those who choose to abstain?”
The photo may be from 2010, from this site, which identifies the photo location further, with a different photo: “Sign at the polling station in Plaistow, West Sussex, on Local Council Polling Day.”

We've been soaking in the Bathtub for several months, long enough that some of the links we've used have gone to the Great Internet in the Sky.

My blog, Millard Fillmore's Bathtub, is a continuing experiment to test how to use blogs to improve and speed up learning processes for students, perhaps by making some of the courses actually interesting. It is a blog for teachers, to see if we can use blogs. It is for people interested in social studies and social studies education, to see if we can learn to get it right. It's a blog for science fans, to promote good science and good science policy. It's a blog for people interested in good government and how to achieve it.
