Today is has a lot of deadlines, it is the last day for applicants to be included in the Register of Electors to be used for both elections (in person as the post won't get there in time) and the last day for requests for a new postal vote or to change or cancel an existing postal vote or proxy appointment.
It is also the last day for delivery of nomination papers /withdrawal of candidature/appointment of election agents for the general election so baring any wrangling over objections to candidates we should have the full list of those standing in all of Sheffield's seats.
Most of the other exciting stuff that has been going on with opinion polls etc is interesting from a personal point of view but not really what this blog is here to cover. However once we have the full list of candidates i hope to start some social media league tables.
In the meantime here is a bit of fun
