This is it. The day has finally arrived.
After the deluge of debate, digging up the dirt, defending the indefensible, blowing of own trumpets, hogging of airwaves, newspapers and screens, the time of reckoning has come.
All other news has overshadowed by an endless stream of incriminating snippets from shady pasts. At least four of the candidates must surely wish they didn't bother, so rampant have the skeletons from the cupboard been.

I still did my civic duty at 9am this morning.
