28th june 1945: General election canvasser

28 Thur. Very cool, very dull and cloudy; fine rain most of the day. Bought a few things locally in morning; nothing worth mentioning happened and no callers save the baker, greengrocer and a lady canvassing votes for one of the socialist candidates in the forthcoming general election*. There is a conservative candidate, a liberal and two socialists for one seat.

*The election will be on 5th July, with some voting delayed due to 'wakes weeks' until 12th and 19th July. The result were counted and declared on 26th July; it took a tiume to transport votes from those serving overseas.
