Winston Churchill could have had the above “crappy” polling stations in mind when he famously stated, “Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others.” Of course, the pictured voting places were snapped just recently while Churchill made his speech in 1947… and of course, today’s crop of candidates can’t hold a candle to the indomitable British Bulldog.

Pooling Places



So this year’s pool of candidates is a tad shallow, we get it, but don’t let that deter you from making some waves on election day.
