Vote, Vote – skipping rhyme

Long rope, two handlers, one at each end.

Vote, vote, vote for Mrs “child’s name”
In comes  “child 2” at the door (second child runs into the rope)
She’s the one to have all the fun
So we don’t want “child 1” and more (first child leaves rope)

Sometimes there’s a shout of “Get her out” to finish the meter of the line)  

Start again for child 2

I remember a slight variation on this one from Dundee in the late 1950s/early60s – and was wondering about the origins of it – the variation I know goes “now (Name 2) is a girl
Who never told a lie
so we don’t need (name one) anymore – shut the door” – and to me it suggests an election campaign song which I am trying to trace.
