If you have read earlier reports here you will know that Andy Burnham has been my choice from day one and has received my first preference vote.
Voting papers dropped through my door Monday but I opted to follow the easy instructions and voted online.
It was quick, more convenient and as the Labour bumf explained costs the Labour Party less money.
If you believe that Labour is swimming in Union cash think again and stop reading Rupert Murdoch's and other right-wing publications.
Compared to the over-funded Conservatives the Labour Party is a poor relation. That is because Labour's policies and politicians by and large work for the good of all but particularly the poor and vulnerable of the U.K.
These supporters are not able to throw thousands of pounds at the party in effect purchasing government.
If you are still deciding who to vote for in the leadership race you have until noon Thursday September 10 to make up your mind and vote.
Don't dither too long though.
If you vote online it is in my opinion a much easier process though it will not be available to all.
The vote here in Hull includes:
For me that person is neither Jeremy Corbyn, nor the candidate flagging behind in last position Liz Kendall.
Yvette Cooper and Andy Burnham have the right political credentials to lead the Labour party back to victory but for me it is Andy who will get my vote.
Cooper's links, married to former Labour Chancellor Ed Balls, do not sit comfortably with me.
But as a true Labour supporter I will back whoever the majority decide should lead the party, unless it is sidetracked in which case I will bow out and join the thousands of others in the U.K. who just do not bother to vote.
The problem right now is individuals with their own political agendas, members of the Greens, Ukip and the Socialist Worker party signing up as Labour supporters to control the vote; some of course for all the wrong reasons
Jeremy Corbyn's team have been able to raise plenty of funds and have already launched campaigns on social media. Aged 66 Corbyn will be 72 come the 2020 General Election. It seems incongruous that a seasoned politician like Corbyn is being called 'new and refreshing' when in truth he must surely be old hat?
If like me you are supporting Andy Burnham, do not want Jeremy Corbyn to win or are still undecided read the following from the Andy Burnham team;
Registered supporters are a new category of voter in this Leadership Election. They are people who share Labour’s values, so they are given an opportunity to take part in decisions relating to the Party.

If you haven’t yet read Andy’s manifesto, you can do so here.
But if you want to have a vote get a move on as the deadline is almost here!
