Labour Party 1969 GE- ‘Instructions to drivers on polling day’ October 19, 2009


This is fantastic, gives a glimpse of domestic life in the late 60s as well as warning the many many pitfalls that may arise.
At the time too not that many had cars, so the Driver was a very important figure at election time, especuially in rural areas.

Yet You’d think that giving lifts to voters was a simple enough matter…….
Its full of handy tips
Try to have your car as clean as possible….. do not take any alcohol while polling is in progress
“…Encourage the women to vote early as this will leave the men free in the evening…
and of course “Don’t forget to vote yourself!”
