No matter what the subject, there always tends to be a large number of spoiled ballot papers whenever there is an election. I’m not really sure what the point of screwing them up is if you’re going all the way to the polling station to vote, but a lot of people seem to do it nonetheless.

Anyway, you don’t normally see much coverage of the spoiled papers – you just tend to hear that X amount of them were defaced – but a photographer from the Get Surrey campaign in Woking decided to snap a few pictures of them this year and has posted them online. Whilst there are a few serious political messages included, the best one undoubtedly has to be the picture of the giant dick on it.
This does look like a lot of fun actually. Next time I have to vote, I’m definitely going to deface my ballot paper. It seems like most of those were people protesting against the electoral system and the political parties on offer, which is fair enough really.
