It’s been exciting times here, with the votes for Scotland’s independence happening today and soon to close as I type this in the next hour or so. Recently our city, towns and villages have been busy with volunteers campaigning in an effort to sway people’s opinions, apparantly 93% of the Scottish electorate have registered to vote so everyone is involved in this huge decision for the future.
Here’s a view of my local polling station in Gourock. The atmosphere was surprisingly quiet and respectful at the entrance – a few No Campaigners on the left and Yes on the right. As I was sitting there drawing, people would give a little nod to either side before going their way.
Feels great to contribute.
“Whatever the outcome of this exciting day,
we need to make this collection of islands a better one.
Peace & love to all the ayes & naws!”
