Are you part of the cashless society? How often do you use cash?

For some people, the days of keeping cash in their pockets are long gone. Contactless cards especially mean many transactions can just be done with a ‘beep’. So we wanted to test how cashless our society is now, and who’s using it.

Please tell us which option is NEAREST to your situation.

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
