My microbiome, that is the billions of bacteria that live on and in my body, in terms of cell number outweigh my own population of human cells 10 to 1. Given this numerical superiority, I felt it only fair that they get a say in deciding my vote in the upcoming general election. And so, building upon a process first suggested by Poulomi Desai, I mixed my microbiome with the candidates and asked them to vote. Obviously, they are not able to tick a box, and so I “asked” the bacteria of my microbiome to move towards, and grow on the candidate of their choice. The results are just in!
