Failed to vote
I missed the deadline to register to vote in Germany for the European Union elections. I am very proud of having voted in every national and local election I could, until now. I’m not proud of every vote, but proud that I voted.
I have lots of excuses for missing the registration deadline:
- Taking a working holiday in New Zealand
- The deadline being on a Sunday
- Not having a printer for my form
But they’re all bad excuses.
I knew that I could have been eligible, and should have sorted out my registration well in advance. I’m ashamed now.
