Ballot Monkey Helps British Citizens Vote (VIDEO, POLL)

If taking part in one of the most competitive elections in history isn't enough of a draw for local British citizens, maybe a monkey will do the trick.

A ballot monkey, to be exact.

The brainchild of the London-based advertising agency Beattie McGuinness Bungay, a new website encourages British ex-pats to cast their votes with the help of a little monkey.

The tiny helper will collect and deliver absentee ballots, and the company ensures that they will get to England in time for the May 6 deadline.
