Successfully returned Conservative MP Glyn Davies tweeted news about one (perhaps) disgruntled voter who drew a penis next to his name on their ballot slip. The voter thought (I presume) he was spoiling his ballot paper but the vote counted.
Mr Davies wrote on his Facebook page: "One voter decided to draw a detailed representation of a penis instead of a cross in my box on one ballot paper.Amazingly, because it was neatly drawn within the confines of the box the returning officer deemed it a valid vote. I'm not sure the artist meant it to count, but I am grateful. If I knew who it was, I would like to thank him ( or her) personally."
Good job it wasn't a hung parliament after all
