Election day here in DK, for the municipal councils.

Something always puzzled me about elections: After you receive a list with all the parties and candidates, you go to a small booth to make that "x", and there's a pencil hanging there for you.
Where you put that "x" will decide, sometimes by very narrow margins, who will be the next primeminister, mayor, ruling political party, etc.
With most other important things you have to fill out in this world, you are specifically instructed NOT to use a pencil - because it can be erased.

Makes you think.
