Letter: Time for online voting option

File photo dated 06/05/2010 of a voter placing a ballot paper in the ballot box at the polling station at Market Hall in Swadlincote, Derbyshire. Voters overwhelmingly believe there should be a referendum on Britain's relationship with the European Union, according to an opinion poll tonight. PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Issue date: Monday June 11, 2012. The survey by Populus for The Times found almost half - 49% - wanted a referendum immediately while a further third - 33% - believed there should be one "in the next few years".

Neither my husband or were able to vote in Erewash because my voting papers arrived on Monday night before the election and his a day later (due to the abysmal postal service between UK & Cyprus).....too late to return them! 
It’s time for internet voting and proportional tepresentation! Think of the time saved, transport costs going to polling stations saved and less disruption to schools used as polling stations.
And if anyone wants to comment, we do have valid reasons for being able to vote. So a legitimate candidate was short of at least two votes ....how unfair? 
We may not have made much difference to the final count....but think how much this will impact nationally.
