Last day for Pedreguer bull referendum
PEDREGUER residents are advised to hurry up and vote quickly in the anti-bull referendum, since the deadline for doing so is tomorrow (January 15).
The council wants all adults aged 16-plus on the padrón, or census, to give their views as to whether the bous embolats and
bous encaixonats should coninue at the local fiestas.
Bous embolats involves flaming rags tied to bulls' horns before they are released into the street, a distressing experience for the animals.
Bous encaixonats sees them tormented in a small, enclosed space by foolhardy spectators.
Voting can be done in person at the Casa de Cultura, not at the town hall as initially advised, or online at www.pedreguerpar ticipa.com
On the website, a tick is a vote in support of the bull spectacles continuing, and a cross is to vote against it.
The council has not borne expats in mind, since many have experienced problems entering their NIE numbers – unlike a Spanish ID, which is eight numbers and a letter, foreigners' IDs start with an X, or a Y for the most recent, followed by seven numbers and a letter.
As the website will not accept the initial X, non-Spanish voters should replace this with a zero.
Local resident Ms McVittie has pointed out confusing spelling mistakes in the English version, which will hopefully have been corrected.
At least 25% of eligible voters must cast their ballot for the referendum result to be considered valid.
