Joshua’s voting journey!

On Friday 4th May 2018 I had a once in a lifetime opportunity to go to the ICC in Birmingham to go and help count the votes for the elections of Thursday 3rd May 2018, this day was long and intense for me because I had to watch every vote that came out the boxes and made sure that no one was cheating or changing votes from 9:00am until 11:00pm!

Morriam Jan and Jon Hunt the councillors for Perry Barr were also there at the count, it was a long time until we actually knew who won the elections for this ward and when the time come we were all anxious and nervous as to who won. It was announced that Councillors Morriam Jan and Jon Hunt won! It was great to be a part of the voting process even though I couldn’t vote myself and to see the journey from campaigning to results! – Joshua Year 10
