There’s no denying that the forthcoming European elections seem to be trying to be all-inclusive … in the wake of a Rotweiller dog in Norton being given the vote comes the following –
Felicity Percival, 4, of Dalton Crescent, in Shildon, County Durham, was sent the polling card this week head of the European Parliament elections on May 22.
The youngster’s bemused mother, Rebecca Currie, 24, thinks that a mix-up when the nomination form was filled in is to blame.
Miss Currie, a Teesside University student, said: “This is the first letter that Felicity has ever received. I find the whole thing amusing.
“We live with my nan, Margaret Giles, and she filled the nomination form in. I think that she must have filled it in wrongly.”
> I’ve got my voting card, but my Cat hasn’t received one. Yet.
