Blank Ballot Papers?
Blank Ballot Papers is an issue that’s really taking the new Scottish media groups by storm it seems our 18th of never vote had so many inconsistencies that no-one really knows the truth any more!
Now us bloggers don’t know much about voting rules but there are lots of council workers that do and many are now speaking out ten days on from the 18th and its amazing what they are saying about the issue of blank ballot papers.
Some are saying counters asked officials about what they should do if no barcodes were on the ballot papers and told to count them anyway.
Debra Storr’s blog stated all Aberdeenshire Ballots had barcodes on the back yet Aberdeen City had none (well my one was blank for sure) on the same blog other counters claimed some had and some never in Glasgow if all these accounts are true how can the count be truly trusted, there’s five weeks to go before complaints about the vote must come to an end by that time Social Media will have done all the ground and leg work for the politicians in the YES Campaign to take over the real fight and if they don’t they may also lose the trust of some of the people as lots of folk are now asking how they have been so silent on these issues as well?
Election Scotland is going to be very busy this week first they need to tell us about blank ballot papers and why there are so many without them being counted and not rejected and what the counters were instructed on before the said counts were started?
How many votes was counted that had no barcodes how many were that did and if they don’t know, why not?
This is getting very disturbing and kind of proves this vote was indeed a shambles and perhaps should either be recounted or given a full revote to gain confidence in our Scottish voting system.
