That ballot box Comments Off

Posted on September 22, 2010 by Teresa Pearce

I read today on Left Futures blog that yesterday the NEC decided to cease its investigation into the tampering of the postal vote ballot box containing Erith & Thamesmead members in the parliamentary selection last year.

Its disappointing that despite 2 postal voters from this constituency making formal complaints to the police regarding the criminal damage to their ballot papers no  action was taken by the police. It seems that the culprit will never be identified but I am happy to say at least some lessons have been learned and selection proceedures have been reviewed so hopefully no other CLP will have to go through the ordeal that Erith & Thamesmead went through.
