In a rush I very, very nearly voted for IGV. Thankfully didn’t, but was a very close call. It’s disgusting the name was allowed.— Chenoa (@nerfgirl) May 8, 2021
Two young adult voters in my house were confused by that; my daughter got her correct choice by luck (she was too embarrassed to ask for help).— Clare (@LiviaBurlando) May 8, 2021
My partner did this but we assumed was probably still a genuine green person at least. She blames having kids around and stress tyog et on and out. No idea how they get away with that.— Paul Ryan (@pjryan51) May 8, 2021
On a different subject, it strikes me that the SNP's controversial 'reserved places' system has had two very unfortunate effects. Most obviously, it's cost Joan McAlpine her seat in the south, but it also means Tom Wills will not be an MSP in the Highlands & Islands. Having come so close to winning the Shetland constituency seat, there would have been a golden opportunity to function as a sort of shadow MSP for Shetland over the next five years, and by the time the next election came around he might have seemed like as much of an incumbent as the Lib Dems' Beatrice Wishart. Perhaps the Lib Dems' decades-long stranglehold on the Northern Isles would have finally been broken. The SNP have really missed a trick there.
My wife nearly fell for it until I pointed it out to her in the polling booth. An utter disgrace. And fully intended.— Proud CyberNat (@proud_cybernat) May 8, 2021
