Friends of the Dickens Forum,

     In mulling over the general subject of Dickens's politics, we wondered
whether Dickens ever voted in a public election?   Was he qualified to
cast a ballot?

     We came across one interesting letter sent to Thomas Hughes on
26 April 1864, which appears to be to the point:

"....I may, for anything I know,have a Finsbury vote in right of my office,
but I have never voted anad have never looked after the qualifications."

Faithfully,

Patrick McCarthy
