Losing the will to vote

• In the history of my short life and since it was legally all right for me to vote, I have voted -- in the drizzle, in the snow and in windy weather.

I have always given my vote. I felt duty-bound. I used to think of the 1916 leaders and all who fought for dear ol' Ireland, I was patriotic and emotional. I loved every inch of my country and thought that it was an act of treason not to vote.

This time around, I don't think at this moment in time I'll bother at all. I don't know whether Yes is the right way to vote and I don't know if No is the right way to vote.
