Poll location defies logic
The Editor, I live next door to a polling station. My voting card says I should vote in Glen Robertson, ten clicks away.
Is this the government’s way of encouraging the economy and encouraging good environmental practices?
Out of curiosity I went to the polling station next door. The polling authorities all knew who I was. I was not allowed to vote.
Someone who was there said I should fill out a complaint form. The same someone (who lives a little further than next door) has filled out a complaint form at this and past elections and their form still says Glen Robertson, ten clicks away. Congratulations to the “paper shuffling-nothing gets done” brigade. By the way, I tore up my voting card into the smallest possible pieces possible as I walked out -- seems to me that matches the government’s mentality. Frances Fraser, Dalkeith
