Wrong ballot papers supplied on polling day in Brent

Not a good start to the day in Brent Central, where ballot papers for the wrong Parliamentary constituency had been supplied to all three polling stations Willesden Green ward. Result? Proper voting didn’t actually start until nearly two hours late.

UPDATE: Another problem, this time reported from York: polling cards issued which said polls were open 7am to 10am (i.e. for just three hours). Ooops:

Poll card error - York

  • How long did it take anyone to notice?

    We had something similar in a county council election and it took over an hour before people realised !!
