As long term readers will be aware, I besmirched my immortal soul by voting Green in the last election so I'm saying nothing this time. It only causes scandal and embarrassment (*flagellates back*).
Today, however, Fr Alexander Lucie-Smith is encouraging Catholics to vote 'Yes' to the AV voting system tomorrow, also warning us that not to vote at all is a sin. He doesn't say whether not to vote is mortal or venial, but at the end of the day a sin is a sin.

UPDATE: Fr Alexander is taking quite some stick from his readers!
