Minor rant. An epic decision is facing Britain. Polls close at 10 pm. People are struggling to get home after a days work and fit in voting. Transport is a mess.
Historically the UK has elections on Thursdays.
Australia, on the other hand, has its elections on SATURDAYS. Sure, some people work on Saturdays and plenty of people have other commitments on Saturdays but it still makes things substantially easier for people to get to polling stations. Not only that, buildings such as schools, frequently used as polling stations, aren’t being used for their main purpose on Saturdays.
