In just a few weeks there will be a State election.

A whole bunch of people who have made some poor decisions and bad mistakes (I hate the privatisation of roads) will go up against a whole bunch of people who are entirely capabale of making equally poor decisions and bad mistakes.

It's sort of depressing really.

Added to that is the fact that, because I live in a 'safe' seat, my tiny vote will really contribute nothing to the democratic process. In fact it's not a democratic process because nowhere on the ballot paper can you legally vote in the "I think they are all crap" box.

I can not vote for anyone - but I'd rather be registered as having actively voted against the standing options.

Then, later in the year I'll get the chance to do it all again, but this time on a Federal level. Six months later another chance at local level. Interesting that we have three levels of Government and so little choice.
