THE right to vote, a keystone of democracy, has not been won easily, and it is still denied to too many people in too many countries to be treated casually.

Majorcan residents eligible to vote in Europe have until the end of May to make sure that they are on the census and electoral role and will not be turned away at the polling booths.
