British Facebook users aged 18 or over are being greeted with an election ticker as they log on to the site today, as the social networking giant uses its reach to keep the election at the forefront of people's minds.

By clicking the "I Voted" button you can help Facebook keep a count of how many of its users have voted in the election. But more importantly than that, the message is then posted to your wall so that your contacts will be reminded to vote if they haven't done so already.

It doesn't show how you voted - although if you really wanted to tell people that you could just post it in your status.

So far, almost a million people have clicked to show that they've voted and by the time you're reading this, it's probably gone well over the million mark.

We here at Pocket-lint are politically neutral and wouldn't dream of telling you how to vote. But remember, if you vote for Pedro then all of your wildest dreams will come true.
