Con­fu­sion on pa­pers?

Bray People - - COUNCIL REPORT -

THE MAS­SIVE AMOUNT of Gen­eral Elec­tion can­di­dates in Wick­low caused con­fu­sion on the bal­lot pa­per ac­cord­ing to mem­bers of Wick­low County Coun­cil.

At a re­cent meet­ing Cllr. John Brady said ‘there was con­fu­sion about the bal­lot pa­per be­cause of the dou­ble col­umns.

‘There were a large num­ber of In­de­pen­dent can­di­dates on the bal­lot pa­per and there was no in­di­ca­tion in the box where other can­di­dates had their party logo which were blank - caus­ing con­fu­sion. Some­thing should have been in those blank boxes ei­ther Non Party or In­de­pen­dent to help re­duce the amount of spoilt votes.’

Cllr. Ge­orge Jones agreed say­ing ‘I can't un­der­stand why Non Party or In­de­pen­dent weren’t put there (in the blank boxes). Some older peo­ple hadn’t a clue.’
