PARIS 2e

"Infotainment? What the hell are you talking about?"


Rock the Vote

They say voting can make a huge difference. That is certainly true if you consider the amount of paperwork that goes into it: It is litterally HUGE. Being signed up for long distance voting by mail in my homecountry, I recieved my ton of election papers in huge envelopes, in which some more huge envelopes were stuffed, along with a voting sheet that is so big that you really start to wonder whether the people who have to count these bulletins all wear cataract glasses and are over 70.

This voting bulletin makes me feel like a fisherman, holding up my catch of the day and bragging about its size. I had to be quite inventive when trying to push the camera button to take this picture, because i was so far away from the camera in order to catch the entire size of this mastodon.

But seriously, it's good to be able to vote. And on June 7th, Europeans are all hitting the election offices in order to reshuffle the European Parliament, and Luxembourg is voting in its new parliament as well. Let's see how things turn out on this one. And let's hope someone comes up with the bright idea to reduce paperwork for elections. He will have my vote for sure.

    Bonjour! Cedric,

    "Europeans are all hitting the election offices in order to reshuffle the European Parliament, and Luxembourg is voting in its new parliament as well..."

    I truly think that they must do somthing to stop all the "waste" of paper.

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
