You probably know more about W Belfast than me,
but the few people I know who live there
would be very unlikely to be intimidated into voting 
as someone else (even their husbands) wanted.

In any case, my point was rather different.
I can imagine a situation where the Provos (in the past)
might have "advised" people not to vote
and frightened a number into not going to the polls.
In such circumstances voting from home might be the only solution.
