When there are too many bees to fit in an established hive, they split into two groups. One stays in the hive with a new queen, the other ventures into the wild with the old queen in search of a new home. These scout bees even have special dances to alert the others when they’ve found a suitable replacement (and show them how to find one), and they essentially democratically select a new home, with other bees copying the dance to show approval.
Maybe we should take a few clues from the bees – can you imagine when you get to your polling station and the two candidates are engaged in an epic dance battle and you would have to copy their moves to cast your vote for the winner? Sounds like fun to me.
